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:

Richard’s interview with BBC Radio slated for Wednesday, preview Sunday


Is Richard in talks for RIII project?


According to Richard Armitage Net, Philippa Langley spoke with Radio Leicester today about the RIII project.  During the interview, Langley said Richard Armitage is currently in Los Angeles pitching the film project (aha! So that’s why he went!) and that a major distributor is on board.  Ali caught the last 12 minutes of the interview, and has a link to that audio. Unfortunately, I could not get it to work, but thought some of you might have better luck:

I did get it to work and learned RA first read Philippa’s script back in 2005.  So they’ve been acquainted for quite a while.  And there’s mention of both a television series and a big screen project as well as Richard being Philippa’s first choice to play the lead role: “I can’t see past him at this point.”


I have to agree with her. I am tired of seeing the same stories told over and over again on the screen. Let’s explore something else for a change.

This is all exciting news, I have to say, both for Ricardians and Richardettes. 😉

Your thoughts?

Wrong time period, but he does make a dashing king, does he not?
