A BBC Radio 4 production of Terence Rattigan’s famous play about an innocent boy unjustly accused ‘It is easy to do justice - very hard to do right.’ When he is accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order, fourteen-year-old Ronnie Winslow is expelled from naval college. But his father believes his claim of innocence and, determined to clear his name, engages the most famous barrister in England to fight his case. It is up to Sir Robert Morton to take on the Establishment in order to ‘let right be done’...Adapted as a famous British film starring Robert Donat, 'The Winslow Boy' is a moving story about fairness and fighting for a principle. This gripping BBC Radio adaptation from 1981 features a distinguished cast including Michael Aldridge, Pauline Letts, Sarah Badel and Michael Maloney.

I saw the more modern version of this movie years and it has captured my interest. I love the characters and the sobering idea that doing the right thing has a cost. The story is short but it does not disappoint.
