Cold Blood will be BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week next week. The first of five 15-minute episodes is at 9.45 on Monday morning.

Hi Richard
I see that they have got the actor Robert Powell in to read it on the radio - didn't they ask you if you would like to do it.

As an appetiser to that tomorrow (Sunday) morning at 6.35am on BBC Radio 4 Living World is doing a programme on the Pygmy Boa Constrictor from the Turks and Calcos islands. If they have sorted out last weeks problems with their I-player will be able to listen at a more convenient time during the day.

They generally want an experienced actor to read the book. You have all been spared my nasal tones.

Thanks. Yes - a strange feeling listening to this different voice. I suspect that like me he tried as a child to make his voice posher. Or, maybe, brilliantly, he chose for the occasion a posh voice that sounded slightly acquired.

yes, it must be odd (in a nice way, I hope) to hear someone pretending to be you on national radio..

Still not bought my copy yet Richard - tho' i intend doing so soon. Your blend of lovingly-recalled memoir and herp natural history looks set to capture the imagination and inspire many a young reader. However, i did listen to Thurs' and Fri's Radio 4 instalments while driving and thoroughly enjoyed them.
The adder story reminded me of a friend's tale of keeping an adder in his bedroom as a boy in the early '70's. He kept the snake's identity secret from his mother - knowing she would hit the roof if she knew what it was. One day it escaped and he searched the house frantically for it while she was out, eventually locating the snake secreted behind the stair carpet!
