Two radio plays by Samuel Beckett followed by a discussion with Christopher Ricks. This conversation focuses on Beckett’s Embers starring Patrick Magee, Elvi Hale and Nigel Anthony. “ He always hears the sea whether he is near it or not, and has a habit of talking, talking, talking, to drown its persistent murmur. He is obsessed by the sea because his father drowned in it” (Hugh Kenner)
