British Novelists: In Their Own Words (BBC Archives)

"Great writers have always fascinated their readers. We want to know how they create the characters we love or hate, the evocative settings, and the plots that have us reading late into the night, desperate to know what happens next. Throughout its history, the BBC has aimed to help audiences delve into the imagination of writers. This collection of interviews with some of the 20th Century's most read authors reveals something of those imaginations and the personalities which lie behind some of the greatest modern novels."

Admiral, THANK YOU for this. BBC iplayer - not available in America last time I was here - has been keeping me sane. Didn't know about the archive, what a treasure chest! Just watched Daphne du Maurier interviewed by William De'Ath.
