  1. Frank D'Souza says:

    Brilliant Drama, certainly. But no less brilliant was the portrayal of starkly differing views, and notwithstanding those, the attempts of at least some to understand others. A refreshing contrast to the hysterical, black and white “reporting” of so much of our print media.

  2. I thought this was a brilliant piece of radio drama.
