I posted a message on Writers and Producers, but it probably should have been in this section - sorry, please bear with me, I am new to this forum.

As I said in the other message, BBC7 is considering broadcasting again Don Taylor's wonderful 1988 series, "God's Revolution" with Bernard Hepton, Nigel Anthony, Christian Rodska, etc etc. Does anyone else remember this wonderful series? It was one of the best things I ever heard on Radio 4, and it is a real shame that it has never been repeated.

I wonder if it is worth other radio drama lovers lobbying BBC7 for a re-run of this series - are we permitted to do this?

At last after nearly twenty two years in abeyance the BBC are rebroadcasting the late Don Taylor's magnificent twelve part drama series about the bid for power by the common people of England, following the end of the first Civil War in 1647.

Episode one, "The Fruits of Victory," was originally aired by Radio 4 on 7th October 1988 and is going out again on Radio 7 starting today (Monday October 4th).

This is serious in depth historical radio drama (in the old style) so make a point of catching this long overdue repeat and get a taste (or poignantly refresh your memory) of what used to be a regular standard for programmes of this type.

Nigel Anthony plays Thomas Fairfax, Christian Rodska, John Lilburne and in episode two Bernard Hepton appears as Oliver Cromwell. The other members of the cast are also of the same high calibre.

Combined with the joint directorial expertise of Shaun MacLoughlin and Ronald Mason, I really cannot commend this production too highly.

Thanks for the update.

Typically I missed the first couple of episodes but given that it has now appeared on BBC7 I expect it will get many more repeats.
