Honour is a 30-minute radio drama that takes place in 16th century, feudal Japan and tells the story of Nao; a disgraced Ashigaru who recounts the story of his deceitful and treacherous life to his Damyo in the hope he be granted an honourable death.

Nao’s story takes us from his childhood rivalry with his brother, through training to become a Samurai, war as a hired mercenary and gambling as an arrogant man. Along the way there is deceit, treachery and conflict as we see all sides in the life of Samurai and their kin.


Honour won the bronze award for Best Speech Programming at the Student Radio Awards, 2018.
