David Tennant is starring alongside Kenneth Branagh in an eight-hour BBC Radio dramatisation of Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman.

The thirteen episodes will be broadcast from 18 to 25 September on BBC Radio 4.

This epic masterpiece, centred around the bloody battle of Stalingrad, charts the fate of both a nation and a family in the turmoil of war. Completed in 1960, the novel was deemed so dangerous by the KGB that the book itself was arrested.

Radio 4 can be heard on FM in the UK and around the world via the Radio 4 website. All epsiodes will be available for 30 days as a free podcast.
