A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation by Jon Sen of Thomas Hardy's tragic tale of star-crossed lovers in the West Country. 'Two on a Tower' is Hardy's ninth novel and contains perhaps his most complete treatment of the theme of love across the class and age divide, and also the fullest expression of his fascination with astronomy and science. This story of passion and sacrifice begins when Lady Viviette Constantine discovers the handsome young astronomer Swithin St Cleeve on the lonely tower on her estate.

Starring Maggie O'Neill as Lady Constantine, Blake Ritson as Swithin St Cleeve, Conrad Nelson as Parson Torkingham and with Amy Humphreys, Stephen Tomlin, Pauline Jefferson, Richard Heap and Carter Dowland. Directed by Stefan Escreet.

    " Not Thomas Hardy's best book, but an interesting tale for sure of the complexities of love and relationships and the cosmos. While taking place about a century ago, it's emotions still ring true today. "

    " What a love story. I found it amusing ( and a bit frightening) that society has come so far in scandalous love affairs. Wow, a guy talked to girl and everyone is all aflutter! I have to admit, the book was a bit dramatic and the ending was just unbelievable, but I enjoyed the book. "

    " it is sad to read about a passionate love that does not endure, and then it is too late. "
