‘The Ambridge Woodlanders – The Archers’ debt to Thomas Hardy and the Victorian serial. Speaker: Adrian Flynn (Scriptwriter to The Archers.)
Adrian Flynn has been a scriptwriter with the Archers for over eighteen years and has written many original dramas and adaptations of classics for young adults, including works by H.G. Wells, Wilkie Collins, Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His talk will look at the influence Thomas Hardy and one or other Victorian writers still have on radio’s longest-running drama.’
