Tea for Two - Madeline Smith, The Oldie Podcast with Harry Bucknall

Sep 01, 09:08 AM
This month sees Harry Bucknall, with The Oldie Podcast tucked under his arm, venture out from under his lockdown rock in Dorset  to London and the refined elegance of Wilton’s Restaurant on Jermyn Street, in St James’s  – just the spot for a cup of tea with his guest, the actress Madeline Smith, who writes candidly  in the August edition of the magazine about working with that genius of stage and screen, the late Sir Alec Guinness who many will remember as Colonel Nicholson in David Lean’s Bridge over the River Kwai, or for his portrayal of John le Carre’s George Smiley in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and latterly  as  Obe Wan Kenobi in George Lucas’s l Star Wars trilogy. We began in bed with Sir Roger Moore.
