Clicking on your "Prince and the Pauper" link does take readers to the BBC's Big Toe site, but there's nothing there about this reading. Jason Isaacs originally did it for a Christmas broadcast several years ago, and I assumed it was being rebroadcast--is that correct?

Yes it's a rebroadcast - my source is this week's BBC7 newsletter
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio7/seasons/newsletter_current.shtml#11

the reading should be listed in the next few days.
