Summary

After the Spanish Civil War, Eric and Eileen Blair travel to Morocco - so that he can rediscover "the heart of England". George Orwell - the pen name of Eric Blair - was a writer and political commentator who is very hard to pin down. He is a complex mass of confusions - an anti-establishment, pro-English, ex-Etonian ex-policeman, and socialist, who was ardently anti-authoritarian. He was as anti-fascist as he was anti-communist, a former Spanish Civil War soldier who was anti-war but pro the Second World War.
This is the second in a series of four BBC Radio full-cast dramas exploring the disjuncture between the man who was Eric Blair and the writer who was George Orwell. Written by Mike Walker. With Joseph Millson, Lyndsey Marshal, and Ewan Bailey. Produced by Jeremy Mortimer.
