Hey, guys. Is anyone else having trouble using the links on get_iPlayer?  I've used them many, many times before without issues. The last time was probably a month or so ago. Now? No go.

Did I miss an update or new procedure or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

House of Ghosts: A Case for Inspector Morse

An original drama written by Alma Cullen around the characters of Morse and Lewis created by Colin Dexter. The focus is on the time in Morse's career when his mind was developing its incisive edge and his personal life was at its most complex.

The year is 1987, and Morse is at the theatre, where the young actress playing Ophelia dies on stage during a performance of Hamlet. A Suspicious Death inquiry begins.

When a suspect is murdered, Morse becomes convinced that the two deaths do, somehow, connect with what happened at an Oxford student production of Hamlet which he was a part of in 1962.

The writer Alma Cullen wrote four screenplays for the popular Inspector Morse TV series, and was a member of the team of writers who helped to create four series which won all the major TV drama awards. She has also written several other TV crime series and one-off screenplays, twelve radio plays and four stage plays.

Neil Pearson plays Morse. He first starred in the award winning popular tv series Drop The Dead Donkey and Between The Lines, and continues to take leading roles in television and in the theatre while also running a successful business as a dealer in rare and unusual books.

Lee Ingleby, as Lewis, is perhaps best known for his roles as Detective Sergeant John Bacchus in the BBC drama Inspector George Gently and Stan Shunpike in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

It is slow going learning this new site.

Everything seems to be marked as "new". I may not be responding to posts for awhile, until I figure it out. I'm so old. :/

John Hurt! Another wonderful actor gone. ;( I\'ve enjoyed every performance I\'ve ever seen.

We also lost Mary Tyler Moore, recently, though I don\'t know if her shows made it across the pond. She was wonderful, and will be greatly missed.

Drama on 3 - Manfred

BBC Radio 3    

Manfred by Lord Byron
This haunting, poetic drama stars Joseph Millson. Manfred, living isolated, high in the mountains, tortured and haunted by a dark crime, invokes spirits in search of solace but finds no peace.

Singers: Rhiain Taylor, Caroline Lock, Michael Gibson, Fionnuala Dorrity, Conrad Nelson, Connor Baiano and Katharine Longworth.
Original music composed and performed by Olly Fox.

Introduction with Gregory Paul Tate, University of St. Andrews
Research consultant, Professor Jane Stabler, University St. Andrews

2017 is the 200-year anniversary of the completion of Manfred:
George Gordon Byron (22 January 1788-19 April 1824) is regarded as one of the greatest British poets. Often described as the most flamboyant and notorious of the major Romantics, Byron remains widely read and influential. Byron wrote this \"metaphysical drama\", as he called it, after his marriage failed in scandal amidst charges of sexual improprieties and an incestuous affair between Byron and his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. Attacked by the press and ostracised by London society, Byron fled England for Switzerland in 1816 and never returned. Manfred was written immediately after this.
