From the prize-winning novel by ANITA BROOKNER
Romantic novelist
Edith Hope so horrifies her friends that they banish her to the solitude of a Swiss hotel. She decides to work out her exile by observing her few fellow-guests: Mrs Pusey and her daughter Jennifer with their simple greed; the mysterious Monica; the deaf Countess cast off by her son; and Philip Neville who preaches a doctrine of pure selfishness. Edith soon finds herself entangled in their lives.
Original music by CARL DAVIS Film editor DICK ALLEN

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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
