King Richard III – News

 


♕ King Richard Live on Radio 4 ♕


 
You think it is not possible to hear King Richard III live on Radio 4?
Steven Berkoff made it possible over the weekend.
Listen for yourself:
 


 
Richard the Third: My Car Park Years, by Steven Berkoff on BBC Radio 4
 
You still don’t believe me?
King Richard III is even up to modern challenges and mastered the Twitter technology: Richard_third
 
 


♕ Further News ♕


 

 
KRA has also opened a new page, to collect the press coverage. It is in no way a complete list, but tries to give an overview over current discussions.
We are very grateful for comments and further tips and links.
Thank you!
 
 


♕ Battle of the Churches ♕


 
 
Shortly after the discovery of human remains at the Greyfriars’ church in Leicester, a new discussion emerged, that of where King Richard III should find his last resting place.
 
To give this new discussion a neutral place, as e.g. a Leicester website would necessarily have a certain outcome, while a York-website would have another, and as the discussion already emerged here on KRA, we will host a poll, to find out what you think would be the right location for King Richard III.
 
Vote for your favourite resting place for King Richard III
 
KRA will not take an active position for one side or the other, as politicians and the tourism industry already have discovered King Richard III for themselves, now that it seems a success story.
 
As this is already more of a heated and fiercely fought discussion than the usual polls, e.g. about why you support the filming of King Richard III by Mr. Armitage, the poll will have more security measures, to ensure that poll fraud is minimized.
Currently the e-mail is set as limit, as also couples using the same computer should get the chance to vote individually. Should we recognize poll-fraud, we will switch to more restrictive measures, but I want to remind, this is a fun-poll, which will have no immediate influence on the decision of this question!
 

The entry of your mail address is necessary to take part in the poll to minimize poll-fraud. Your personal details will not be shared or used in any way, but are necessary for the safe handling of this poll. Thank you for your understanding.

 
As we already stated in our post of Saturday, 15th of September 2012, all places have advantages and disadvantages and I am sure, you can add some further points to the discussion.
 
I am really curious what you see as the most adequate resting place for King Richard III.
 
Please leave comments at the poll page, if you have conditions you would like to be met by either of the places or have other suggestions for a resting place.
 
 
Thank you!
