Kenneth Branagh is returning to BBC Radio 4 to lead the cast of a new play about the epic battle of Stalingrad.
The two-part drama, based on war reporter Vasily Grossman’s account, also stars Greta Scacchi, Doon Mackichan, Kenneth Cranham and Mark Bonnar.
Speaking about the new adaptation, Branagh said: “Stalingrad is unique radio, and a true privilege to work on. A gripping panorama of the human experience in an epic Russian context, but with a universal, and very personal connection for listeners. I’m so grateful that the BBC have given us this masterpiece in audio, and proud to have played a small part in a phenomenally talented and committed cast and production team.”
The play will be on Radio 4 on Saturday 30 November, 2.45-4.45pm and Sunday 1 December, 3-5pm.
