I’m doing a second Wednesday Worthies post today, because this is my blog, and I get to make the rules about posting.

My friend Brian Sibley, journalist, author, broadcaster, raconteur, et cetera, et cetera and so forth, adapted Mervyn Peake’s novels about Titus Groan for BBC Radio, and the series was broadcast last year. It has received three nominations in the BBC Audio Awards, which will be presented January 29th, 2012.

The History of Titus Groan has been nominated in the following categories:

Best Supporting Actor/Actress in an Audio Drama for Carl Prekopp who played Steerpike

Best Use of Sound in an Audio Drama for Producers David Hunter, Gemma Jenkins and Jeremy Mortimer


Best Adaptation for Brian himself!
