Afternoon Play: My Love Must Wait

on BBC Radio 4 FM

Jenny Agutter and Stuart Cox bring history alive in a play based on the letters of maritime explorer Matthew Flinders, the first European to circumnavigate Australia. Nick Warburton's drama creates a voice for the newlywed Ann Flinders who, if things had been different, might so easily have accompanied Matthew on his great voyage. Instead, she had to wait a decade for his return in 1810.
