Samuel West - The British on Australian TV, Britten, Advice from the Players

Sam plays Samuel Pepys in episode 4 of The British, which will be broadcast 7.30pm tomorrow on SBS1.

He narrates "Prisoner's Monologue" from Britten to America. It featured in Sunday's episode of The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan. The episode is available to stream; skip to 2:42:30 to hear the track. 

In mid August, he narrated Executed, a documentary about the death sentence in Britain (via @UnitedVoices_).

On 21 November, Sam, director Giles Ramsay and writer Nigel West will discuss deception in a talk at the V&A. Tickets for the event can be booked online.

The Guardian has published an extract from the book Advice from the Players, by Laura Barnett. Harriet Walter and Simon Russell Beale have contributed to the book. Sam has provided suggestions on learning lines and choosing the right drama school. The book will be published 18 September.
