Du Maurier and Cherry Cookson

Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca is a big favourite of mine. Found it on Radio 4Extra and set aside an hour and a half to listen to the whole thing. How wonderful to hear that the producer was Cherry Cookson, visitor to Yeovil who talked about writing for radio. Great job, Cherry.
