Homage to Catalonia

I have a shameful admission: I am yet to read George Orwell’s classic Homage to Catalonia.

I have absolutely no excuse either, which makes me feel much worse.  Luckily, the good old BBC has broadcast a 2-part radio adaptation, which is available for free on the BBC iPlayer!  Detailing Orwell’s journey to fight against fascism in Catalonia, the adaptation seems to give a nice overview for anyone like me who has had the book on the ‘must-read’ list for far too long!

Listen to the first part of the adaptation here.  The second part is to be aired 3rd February.
