Lighthouse keepers Howell and Griffith are posted to six weeks on the Smalls - a desolate rock 20 miles off the Pembrokeshire coast. But the two men share a past, and because of what happens next, lighthouses would never again have only a crew of two. Based on a true story. Written by Alan Harris, and starring Paul Rhys as Howell and Ifan Huw Dafydd as Griffith. Directed by James Robinson.

I enjoyed the old radio show style, and the twist on the traditional "haunted house" story.
Both characters were well written and performed! Ifan Huw Dafydd's "Griffith" was every bit the pirate voiced, world weary seaman with a taste for vengeance. Paul Rhys was excellent as the conflicted young "Howell".
Howell, of course. It was refreshing to enjoy him in a role that was NOT evil or creepy for a change!
Yes.The story is very eery and suspenseful, with a good plot twist! I have listened to it multiple times.
Great sound effects and attention to detail.
"Based on a true story... With embellishment!"
I really enjoyed this lively adaptation by BBC radio 4 of the story of Smalls Lighthouse. Great performance by the cast with full audio sound effects. Although embellished regarding the 'wife', I'd still give this top marks. It's worth reading this history and real story at Trinity House website.
