Radio 4 To Bring Together 1960s Cast And Crew

A documentary on BBC Radio 4 next Sunday will see cast and crew from 1960s Doctor Who recounting the early days of the show.

In The Reunion - billed as a series that "reunites a group of people intimately involved in a moment of modern history" - presenter Sue MacGregor brings together director Waris Hussein, actors Carole Ann Ford, William Russell, and Jeremy Young, plus actor-turned-presenter Peter Purves to look back at "the triumphs and disasters" of Doctor Who's formative period.

The 45-minute show airs on Sunday 7th April at 11.15am and should be available to listen to worldwide via the BBC iPlayer. It has been made by Whistledown, which has previously reunited Paul McGann and Richard E Grant, among others, for a special edition of the programme, broadcast in May 2008, centring on the cult film Withnail And I.
