It was based on Quentin's diaries about his time in New York, which became the basis of that Sting song, An Englishman In New York. Once met QC on the set of a Jarman film where he played Queen Liz I. Lifelong hero.

As to Hurt's voice, didn't he give Attenborough a run for his money narrating a bunch of BBC nature docs at the end there? So glad that a slight hint of Derbyshire accent survived all that Shakespearean brainwashing.
