Look whose visiting BBC this time! It’s the scary headless horseman and famous Ichabod Crane. You probably heard of the story already. If not from the book itself (or rather a short story) then from movies or even TV show. I actually like the movie with Johnny Depp, but the “Sleepy Hollow” TV show wasn’t that great. Rather fun for few episodes and then I just lost my interest.
But let’s get back to the BBC adaptation. I listened to it once already about 2 years ago. It’s was good, although not perfect. I’m going to try again anyway 🙂 Maybe you’ll join me this time.
In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel’s farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball during the Revolutionary War.
There are 3 part to this story on BBC, each one lasts o.5 hour. Here’s the link to the first one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007wlpm. You should have 23 more days to listen to the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Enjoy 🙂 and tell me what you thought about it.
