Bakewell West Scales


Joan Bakewell interviews Prunella Scales and Timothy West is a fifteen-minute BBC radio interview, with journalist Joan Bakewell interviewing actors Prunella Scales and her husband Timothy West about Scales’s Alzheimer’s. You can hear it in evidence in what she says, but as sad as that is, the good humour of the two of them dealing with it—and all three of them dealing with old age—is remarkable. This is wonderful listening.

Bakewell: Do you remember Fawlty Towers?

Scales: Yes, what about—what do you mean, the lines?
