Alex Jennings has a wonderful voice; it gives depth and character to anything he reads, and whatever part he plays on radio or television. What a gift!

I am listening to a play (I recorded it when broadcast on November 20th 2008) called 'My Year Off' written by Robert McCrum, in which he takes the part of Robert. His voice is perfect for the part.
