Award-winner Ed Harris tells us about the thrill of working with Richard as a young radio writer. Richard starred in his poignant 2009 BBC Radio 4 drama, The Moment You Feel It, a story in which Alf (Richard Briers) struggles to come to terms with growing older. Ed tells us what it was like to meet and work with Richard. In a performance he considers to be 'astounding' he remembers Richard becoming Alf - it was like the "ringtone" of writing in his head being transformed into music with a full orchestra.
