I had the pleasure of writing the dramatic scenes for this fascinating docudrama, What Walls Hold, which was broadcast on Christmas Day on BBC Radio 3 and is currently available to stream. Presented by Ben Gernon, it tells the story of Tavistock House, which through its life was home to painter Frank Stone, world-famous novelist Charles Dickens, amateur soprano and litigant Georgina Weldon, and French composer, Charles Gounod. Put your feet up and enjoy.
