    ..............This is a fascinating monologue: war as seen through the eyes of a soldier who fought at Agincourt, played by Bob Hoskins and produced by Alfred Bradley. It was broadcast on Radio 3, 15 Nov 1988, and was repeated in a slightly amended version (45minutes instead of 50) on World Service. It gives a very vivid account of the events surrounding Agincourt, and what it was like during the battle.

    The piece was very favourable reviewed in the Observer, the Times, the Sunday Telegraph and the Guardian. It's a moving piece about a society much more harsh and bloody than our own.

    AFTER AGINCOURT is given a footnote in the Arden edition of Henry V, as an alternative view of Henry the Hero.
