Summary
Samuel Pepys was twenty-six when he decided to start keeping a diary in January 1660. For the next ten years he faithfully recorded the day's events and confessed his innermost thoughts. That diary has since become one of our most important, and fascinating, historical documents. Pepys gave us eyewitness accounts of some of the great events of the seventeenth century, including the Great Fire of London and the Second Dutch War. He also told us what people ate and wore, what they did for fun, the tricks they played on each other, what they expected of marriage, and even how they conducted love affairs. He described London--the frozen river Thames, the rising crime rate and the poverty--and recorded the details of his own life: his wife, rivals, lovers, and friends; his work for the Navy; and his drinking and social life. Over 350 years may have passed since Pepys first put pen to paper, but the man and his preoccupations feel surprisingly familiar. In this major BBC Radio dramatization of the journals, the sights and sounds of his world are vividly conjured. This collection comprises all ten radio series plus a special Saturday Drama centering on the Great Fire of London
