An abridged version in nine parts
Part 2 (from Books 2, 3. and 4) MARtUS GORING as ' Half-Rome' JAMES MCKECHNIE as 'The Other Half-Roma '
HUGH BURDEN as ' Tertium Quid'
'Half-Rome' speaks the day alter the murder and ' finds much excuse tor Guido. His opinion is coloured by jealousy of his own wife.
' The Other Half-Rome,' speaking the next day, has found his way to the hospital cell where Pompilia lies dying. Her beauty and calm of spirit move him to speak in her defence.
* Tertium Quid,' two days later, makes his account of the murder an opportunity to demonstrate his shrewdness and turn of elegant phrase to a distinguished audience in the hope of personal advantage.
