T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral is both a fascinating retelling of the 12th-century assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket and a compelling call for resistance in the face of intimidation. Written against the backdrop of rising Fascism in 20th-century Europe, Eliot's classic verse play is as relevant now as it ever was.
This re-release of the original 1953 recording stars Robert Donat, whose commanding performance as the Archbishop, alongside a full cast, is widely celebrated.

"Murder in the Cathedral"
Could really get a picture of the reasons why Beckett was assassinated and the guilt of the King..
The point where Henry II curses about the archbishop and asks why nobody would kill him.. I can feel that moment..
Very clearly spoken throughout, fantastic work..
Enjoyed it very much, a favourite in my collection..
