Summary
  • Two archive BBC Radio programmes from 1991 and 1996 in which Judi Dench and her husband Michael Williams, accompanied by friends, read a variety of poetry and prose. 'With Great Pleasure' saw Judi Dench and Michael Williams joined by fellow actor Alec McCowen to read some of the literature that shaped their lives. Among the poems included are Sylvia Plath's 'Morning Song', 'Fern Hill' by Dylan Thomas and Charlotte Mitchell's 'Just in Case', and there are extracts from Shakespeare's 'Antony and Cleopatra', Alan Bennett's 'The Lady in the Van' and Alec McCowen's 'Young Gemini'. 'Fond and Familiar' was a true variety show featuring Dench, Williams and acclaimed actor John Moffatt. Together they performed verses, ballads, limericks, stories, nursery rhymes and epitaphs ranging from the comic to the deeply moving. Featuring old favourites such as 'The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God', 'Mandalay' and 'Billy's Rose' as well as less well-known gems that are nonetheless remembered with affection.
