New radio versions of two classic Alan Bennett plays, which are generally performed together under the title Single Spies.
An Englishman Abroad
1958. A squalid flat in Moscow. Over a paltry lunch, exiled spy Guy Burgess interrogates actress Coral Browne about English society gossip.
A Question of Attribution
Set in the 1960s, before Professor Anthony Blunt , the director of the Courtauld Institute, was exposed and disgraced as a spy. Blunt is replacing a Titian at the Palace when the Queen comes in. The painting is a fake.
