RA interview with BBC Radio today; watch latest RIII doc on YT


Just a reminder to all that the full interview with Richard Armitage regarding his career and recent discovery of “The King in the Car Park,” aka R III, will air at 11:10 a.m. GMT on BBC Radio Leicesterhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/radioleicester

I truly hope to be asleep at the time the broadcast could be heard live here, but will catch up later. I will be in town for a good portion of the afternoon, so not sure when I will get back with you all to discuss it. Humane Society meeting, a visit to the library, some shopping and an attempt to set up an appointment to trim my hair and wax the brows and ‘stache (yeah, I have one. Thank goodness it’s blonde).

Anyway, back to the Richard III story. The second Channel 4 documentary Richard III: The Unseen Story, is now available to watch ( for non-UK residents, anyway) on YouTube. Haven’t had a chance to watch it all yet, but it’s very interesting and features more of the science behind the find:

  1. Well, that was over and done with very quickly! I’m probably wrong because I wasn’t watching the time all that closely, but it didn’t seem to be much more than 5-6 minutes long. Somehow I thought there was going to be more to it than that!
    He definitely skirted the issue of his involvement with Phillipa Langley on the RIII project very diplomatically by congratulating her on the success of the dig. Most non-committal, but then he was back in November too at the Wellington premiere when asked about playing the title role. “Too old, too tall.” He has never, to my knowledge, even touched upon the suggestion of playing another character such as Warwick. Maybe his inclinations really are leaning to more of a directing role.

  2. I was not able to listen live, but if the preview was almost all there was, where’s this “good news” we were all anticipating?
