You can hear the piece of music HERE.
One final detail underlined the exceptional quality of this programme. Instead of drenching Peter Harness’s script in a synthesised score, Hardy used extracts from classical masterpieces: Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition for bustling at the town hall and the sublime slow movement of Schubert’s Last Piano Sonata for the dying rooms. What an eerily clever choice: music written by a man facing death in his early 30s. That was the age group preferred by the Spanish flu, which turned the strong immune systems of healthy young people against them. As Niven observed: “It likes a fight.”
