The Final Hour
By Dave Carley and Glenda MacFarlane
Drama – 5m – 1 hour
Set in real time during the final hour before the D Day landing of June 6, 1944, this radio play was a huge hit for CBC Radio this year. Five soldiers talk and reveal their inner hopes and fears, as they prepare for the greatest undertaking of their lives.
The Final Hour is intermittently available from the CBC and can sometimes perhaps be ordered from the CBC website. The stage version is available on this site, in the 'Plays' section.
Finalist: The New York International Radio Awards and the Canadian Screenwriting Award.
