“The Screwtape Letters” Radio Theatre Audio Drama VIDEO-Preview

ScrewtapeLettersradiotheatre

This is a first-ever-online sneak peak video of Radio Theatre‘s dramatic audio production of The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis, starring Andy Serkis.  I currently have a semi-exclusive on this preview, simply because it hasn’t yet been uploaded anywhere else.

For those of you who don’t know who Andy Serkis is, the last time you saw him he probably looked like this. For those of you who don’t know who
C. S. Lewis is . . . um, please leave now.

It’s an exciting product, and I’m really looking forward to this coming into Tyndale House Publishers’ warehouse this October (for those who don’t know, that’s where I work). Hopefully there will be no delays and we can hit the Christmas shopping season full force. I know I’m planning on getting a few copies.

UPDATE 9/18/09:  IT’S UP!!!  The Screwtape Letters campaign is underway.  Visit Screwtape.com and check it out!  I will keep this article sticky for another week before letting it drop to its normal chronologically arranged place on my blog.

UPDATE 12/15/09:  Had to take down my file because it was hogging the bandwidth on my hosting server.  I’ve embedded the official Tyndale YouTube feed here for your viewing convenience.  Enjoy!

    Dear Sir
    Please can you remove the screwtape preview. This version was a work in progress and contains uncleared music. We now have a proper cleared version and if you want to replace it – talk to focus.
    Many thanks

    I ordered this from CBD with an original ship date of 9/18/09. Today, the ship date has changed to 10/18/09. Bummer

  7. Jackie,
    Yes our “bound-by-date” was September 18th, which means that the product was scheduled to be manufactured by that date. October 18th is probably closer to when it will actually be available through retailers though. Actually, now that I look, they’ve CBD has changed the date to October 30th. Not sure what the hold up is. I know they are in-house.
