A Reminder From Sir – Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot – BBC Radio 4 Adaptation

I posted about this around a month or so ago and linked to the podcast but they were only on a 30 day “listen again” time limit. I downloaded the episodes so they could be available here permanently.

I had the reminder yesterday, by way of His Kerrness (it was that title of his homage to Little Richard what done it, “the darker the night, the brighter the stars”) to get these episodes uploaded to the blog.

So, here we go, Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, in four parts.




Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Idiot – BBC Radio 4 Drama

I do love listening to BBC Radio dramas, book readings, etc. They do them so well. I recently listened to another Dostoevsky adaptation – that of The Brothers Karamazov – also equally well done. I’ve listened to three of the episodes of The Idiot so far, and will listen to the final one tonight.

I’m sharing the link to the podcasts for now, but the episodes won’t last for long but I’ll get them and create permalinks here for them. In the meantime, if you want some escape from lockdown and you just want to close your eyes and listen to something – you could do much worse than escaping to Russia and listen to The Idiot.

Enjoy the dulcet tones of acting doyen, Roger Allam, in amongst the cast.

UPDATE: Now finally uploaded the episodes, here’s the permalink:
