WATERSHIP DOWN is both a children’s classic and a favorite of adults. Whether this is just a simple tale about rabbits or a complex political allegory depends upon the listener, but Ralph Cosham’s narration fits both. He is a calm and steady storyteller whose intimate, understated style draws the listener in. As the rabbits embark on a journey of survival, Cosham communicates their fear and uneasiness. He’s sensitive to their personalities and moods as they travel together and meet a number of challenges. For the other animals, Cosham uses various accents that differentiate them from the rabbits. In the introduction Adams says that one of the novel’s bird characters was based on a Norwegian freedom fighter.
