The unfinished business of the Lockerbie bombing

This is the headline over a video that was posted on this date in 2010 on the website of The Guardian. In it actor and playwright David Benson describes how he was inspired by Dr Jim Swire, whose daughter was killed in the Lockerbie plane bombing, to create a play about the attack.

The video can be viewed here. A further article about the play and its genesis can be read here.

[RB: David Benson is again performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year but in a very different play, Dad’s Army Radio Hour.]
