MAPP & LUCIA ON TV OVER CHRISTMAS

Posted by Jules Gammond on

Tie-ing in with the broadcast of a new lavish mini series of Mapp and Lucia for December 29, 30 and 31, is G2's Retro Classic release of Geoffrey Palmer's biography of E F Benson, As He Was, priced at £12.99. The principal setting of four of the Mapp and Lucia books is a village called Tilling, which is  based on Rye in East Sussex where Benson lived for many years and served as mayor from 1934. Benson's home Lamb House served as the model for Mallards, Mapp's—and for a short while Lucia's—home in some of the Tilling series.
