Mary Shelley's tale of a 17th century Englishman found in the ice brought back to life.

It’s 1826 and London is agog with news of a man who has been de-frozen after 170 years in Ice.

Mary Shelley - the author of Frankenstein - speculates on what changes the defrosted Mr Dodsworth must be finding in the world since his sleep began back in Cromwell's time.

Read by Catherine Dolan.

Producer: John Cardy
