: WHAT MAISIE KNEW

by HENRY JAMES dramatised in three parts by Denis CONSTANDUROS
Her parents having divorced, Maisie faces a future in which she will be shuttled to and fro
PART 1: Shuttlecock
Cast in order of appearance:
Script editor, Lennox Phillips Costumes. Roger Reece Make-up, Monica Ludkin Designer, Stuart Walker
Producer, DAVID CONROY Directed by DEREK MARTINUS
Repeated on Thursday at 9.55 p.m.
' THE wretched infant was thus to find itself practically disowned, rebounded from raquet to raquet like a tennis ball or a shuttlecock.' So wrote Henry James about his thirteen-year-old heroine Maisie.
People who think that broken marriages and tug-of-war children are an innovation of recent years are in for a shock in this new serial. Maisie's parents don't get on, in fact they hate each other. ' He said I was to tell you,' Maisie faithfully reports to her mother, 'you are a nasty horrid pig.'
Throughout the story Maisie is used as a pawn, a weapon to be inflicted or withdrawn whichever will cause the most distress to the other; not only by her parents but by the partners of second marriages and other relationships.
We see this marital square dance through the eyes of Maisie, eyes that appear to remain totally innocent amid all the corruption.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY 'S
The Old Man and the Sea starring
SPENCER TRACY
Photography by JAMES WONG Howe
Screenplay by PETER VIERTEL based on the story by ERNEST HEMtNGWAY
Directed by John Sturges
Produced by Leland Hayward
An old man fishes in the Caribbean Gulf Stream. He has gone eighty-four days without a catch. On the eighty-fifth day, alone in his boat, his bait is taken by a huge fish and for two whole days he struggles to gain mastery over it.....
Ernest Hemingway won a Pulitzer Prize for the novel on which the film is based, and his dialogue is used almost word-for-word. The director, John Sturges , best known for Westerns like Gun-fight at the OK Corral and Bad Day at Black Rock (also starring Spencer Tracy ) found dramatic composition at sea very difficult with only a man, small boat, and a fish; but he would appear to have overcome these difficulties and the photography, by James Wong Howe , assisted by another master, Floyd Crosby , is magnificent. Hemingway, who accompanied the film expedition part of the time, puts in a brief appearance in a cafe sequence.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
