The Purple Land (BBC Radio Four Saturday 16th July)

David Tennant appeared in the Saturday Play on BBC Radio Four on Saturday 16th July from 2.30pm until 4pm. The play is described as "Andrew Davies's rip-roaring adaptation of WH Hudson's epic Uruguayan adventure."

The BBC Radio Four publicity announcement says:
"Published in 1885, The Purple Land was the first novel of William Henry Hudson, author of Green Mansions. It is an exuberant, wryly comic account of a young Englishman's imprudent adventures, set against a background of political strife in 19th-century South America. Eloping with an Argentine girl, young Richard Lamb (Tennant) makes an implacable enemy of his teenage bride's father. Leaving her behind, he goes ignorantly forth into the interior of the country to seek his fortune. While doing so he learns to hunt, ride, herd, love and even kill on his way to becoming a man. In Davies's hands this "road novel" becomes a fast-paced romp in the tradition of Tom Jones, with a dash of Don Quixote for good measure. Producer/Clive Brill for Pacificus Productions."
