UPDATE: This program is no longer available, as the BBC has removed it from their website. Sorry ’bout that.
If, like me, you’ve been impatiently awaiting the release of Seamus Heaney’s translation of Book Six of the Aeneid, you’re in luck: all this week, BBC Radio 4’s “Book of the Week” program will feature Sir Ian McKellen reading from the newly-published book[!].
If you don’t live in the UK (or if you do and missed the first episode), never fear! All five episodes are available to listen to online right now from anywhere in the world (here’s the link). Just don’t bookmark the page and forget about it, because each episode is only available for a month after it airs.
