Radio 4 - Agatha Christie's Life in Her Words

I've had a tip-off (thank you Alison) about this programme about Agatha Christie on Radio 4 tomorrow night. It lasts an hour and is on at 8pm and is also on Monday at 3pm and will no doubt be available on iplayer for a few days as well:

Crime writer Val McDermid listens to recordings made by Agatha Christie which have never before been broadcast.

A panel of guests, including dramatist Kevin Elyot, biographer Laura Thompson, archivist John Curran, who has recently deciphered Christie's notebooks, director Enyd Williams and writer Michael Bakewell, discuss their approach to dramatising her novels for TV and radio and the light that these recordings shed on Christie's working methods.
