Weekly Audio Clip

I have added the excerpt where Richard reads from the North & South proposal. I left 'Song' up because I'm sure all of you love hearing him say 'O Lady' as much as I do!

IdoIdoIdo! Since returning my library's Lords of the north audiobook i don't have any RA audio material at my fingertips, and this is the closest thing to it.

Where did you get the recording of RA reading the proposal scene from N&S!?
I had only heard it read by Greg Wise on Maria Grazia's Fly High! blog.
Does RA read the whole novel? I MUST have it!!
I love the book so much and to have it read by none other than Richard Armitage is such a treat..I don't know if I can bear it!!!

Believe he recorded only the proposal scene unfortunately. But, if there is more I'm sure Armitage Admirer will let you know asap. She's still having technical difficulties. Bummer! Richard narrated many Robin Hood episodes as well. In fact there used to be a website with samples for each one. Will take a look and post a link if it's still there.

I can't honestly tell you where I found that clip of the proposal. I have done so much 'research' on Richard and have collected a lot. I know there is a youtube vid that has the proposal with music behind it. But I prefer just the sound of his voice. I have clips of him reading Robin Hood and I will post those. I am still having computer problems, and they are not going to go away. But I have the library!

Armitage Admirer, you might have found it here, along with a reading from a letter from Claude Monet to his friend Bazille?

Just wanted to say thanks for the audio interviews which start to play as soon as I visit the website, lovely!

Didn't know about Richard reading the proposal scene, I remember that a lot of the filmed proposal scene had been edited out apparently from N&S.

Love Richard reading "Oh Lady" but I must admit I prefer the reading that I heard on YouTube which someone had added background music to, which really seemed to emphasise the mood of the poem and give it extra umph!

By the way what ever happened to the "bum shots" from Spooks 8? I brief glimpse of those peaches really used to set me up for the day!
