For those who are interested, it appears that BBC7 is considering broadcasting Don Taylor's wonderful "God's Revolution" from 1988. It might help them to make up their minds if those of us who remember the series contact BBC7 and lobby for the re-run. The more, the merrier!

Welcome to the forum luckyBolognese

I have never heard this production, it would be interesting to hear why you like it so much.

Thank you for your kind welcome.

I am sure the members of this forum would love Don Taylor's radio serial, "God's Revolution". It is set during the English Civil War and relates the story of two families within that historical context. It manages to combine an enthralling personal story with the unfolding of complex historical events - no mean feat given the political and religious intracacies of those years. The cast is simply wonderful - Bernard Hepton is a very human Cromwell. Add to him the talents of Nigel Anthony, Christian Rodska, Bill Wallis, David March, Deborah Makepeace, Kim Wall, Anthony Jackson - it is one of the strongest radio casts I know. And, best of all, it lasts for 12 one-hour episodes. Sheer bliss. If BBC7 does get round to rerunning this classic, I cannot recommend it too highly.
