Cornucopia Radio Podcast 69: Fading Down The River
31 min
The future comes for us all eventually. No matter how many times we have fought the good fight. So on the morning of September 1838, the HMS Temeraire, known as the ‘Fighting Temeraire’, was towed down the Thames to her final destination. On that day, the artist William Turner looked upon the scene and immortalised it in what was later to become the nation’s favourite painting. But there was more to this story than just a painting, but perhaps it is not the story you were expecting… "Fading Down The River" is our new historical audiodrama. Written by Brian Stephenson and Christopher Bellamy.
