A BBC Radio 4 production of Terence Rattigan's famous play about an innocent boy unjustly accused 'It is easy to do justice - very hard to do right.' When he is accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order, fourteen-year-old Ronnie Winslow is expelled from naval college. But his father believes his claim of innocence and, determined to clear his name, engages the most famous barrister in England to fight his case. It is up to Sir Robert Morton to take on the Establishment in order to 'let right be done'...Adapted as a famous British film starring Robert Donat, 'The Winslow Boy' is a moving story about fairness and fighting for a principle. This gripping BBC Radio adaptation from 1981 features a distinguished cast including Michael Aldridge, Pauline Letts, Sarah Badel and Michael Maloney.

    " Was it just my imagination or did my Standard Grade English teacher really pick this drama about a stolen five-shilling postal order over Shakespeare?? "

    " So similar, and yet different, from the movie. "

    " Interesting pre WW1 drama about a boy accused of stealing a postal order and his fathers campaign for justice. Compelling story but could have made more of the supporting characters side stories and the knock onn effect of the case other than the father and son :) "

    " I was about 13 when I read The Winslow Boy. Ever since then the courthouse is a dreadful place, and I believe it was from the fear that I developed as I went through various motions with the young Winslow. Great read for all ages. "

    " I've wanted to read this since, oh, at least 2004 when I read an excerpt from this somewhere. It was delightful, well worth the wait, and makes me want to run out and devour all of Rattigan's oeuvre at once! "

    " I liked the spirit of this Family. I loved the fact that his parents and sister believed him enough to fight for him. Great true story! "
