The Red Queentells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.

Derek Brock; Read by Gareth Armstrong

Derek Brock's father-in-law was an irascible and legendary country publican at the 16th century Six Bells Inn at Penmark, who expected his son-in-law to follow in his footsteps. Despite his inexperience of the bar trade, young Brock rather liked the idea of dispensing pints to the locals. He hadn't bargained, though, for the three dozen Cuckoo Maran hens, six store cattle, three sows and litters, and a varied assortment of other livestock that went with the job. Little wonder, perhaps, that his father-in-law had retired early with heart trouble!

As Dreyfus begins, reluctantly, the appalling narrative of his betrayal, he must confront, too, his own guilt for a lifetime's denial of his Jewish origins. Bernice Rubens has created a character of profound and moving humanity; in placing him at the end of the 20th century, she makes his story a tragedy resonating with historical tragedy and bound in with the fate of six million others.

The Lodger - Shakespeare on Silver Street (Audio cassette): Charles Nicholl The Lodger - Shakespeare on Silver Street (Audio cassette)
Charles Nicholl; Read by Gareth Armstrong
R1,544 Discovery Miles 15 440 Out of stock

In 1612, Shakespeare gave evidence at the Court of Requests in Westminster -- providing us with the only surviving record of his spoken words. The case seems routine -- a dispute over an unpaid marriage-dowry -- but it opens up an unexpected window into the dramatist's famously obscure life-story. Charles Nicholl applies a powerful biographical magnifying glass to this fascinating but neglected episode in Shakespeare's life. Drawing evidence from a wide variety of sources, he conjures up a detailed and compelling description of the circumstances in which Shakespeare lived and worked. This atmospheric exploration of Shakespeare at 40 sees him not from the viewpoint of literary greatness, but in the humdrum and very human context of Silver Street.

Now the dark rats were restless, tormented by a craving they could not satisfy. But the white sluglike thing that ruled them knew. Its two heads weaved to and fro and stickiness drooled from its mouth as it remembered the taste of human flesh...
