“Dracula” originally aired on July 11, 1938.
The Victorian Gothic novel Dracula is associated with the dense forests of Transylvania rather than the Georgian squares of Dublin, but the great great nephew of its Irish born author thinks that is an oversight. In time for the centenary of Bram Stoker’s death, which will be in 2012, Dacre Stoker has begun work to raise money to erect a memorial to his ancestor to join the statues and plaques commemorating Dublin’s many other writers, such as James Joyce and Samuel Beckett.
Sounds like a good idea to us.
