Memorials to the Missing
The script of my radio play about Fabian Ware and the creation of the Imperial War Graves Commission successfully broadcast in November 2007 on BBC Radio 4. Nominated for a Sony Award. From the BBC website - Stephen Wyatt's Memorials truly was radio drama at its best; dynamic, informative and beautifully moving. I, like many others, wept while listening. A superb, touching, well written and historically accurate play. A wonderful experience. It is rare that any play is that powerful and involving. The best Radio 4 play in twenty years!
