: ' Esme Percy in OPIUM-EATER'

The story of De Quincey
A radio-dramatic reconstruction from his ' Confessions ' by Paul Dehn and Felix Felton
In three episodes: Manchester Grammar School—
Oxford Street-Opium
Characters
Thomas De Quincey ; The Rev. Samuel Hall ; Mr. Charles Lawson ; The School Butler; Ann ; Lord Desart ; The Apothecary ;
Barbara Lewthwaite ; The Malay
Music specially composed by Robert Chignell , and played by an orchestra conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Produced by Felix Felton
Few lives have been more tragic than that of Thomas de Quincey (1785-1859), who possessed both the capacity and the urge to, write, but was dogged by such ill-health that the only drug he could take to keep him going very nearly took away from him the will to write that is every author's life-blood.
This dramatic feature around his life, first broadcast in October 1935, tells of his early days at Manchester Grammar School ; of persistent ill-health ; of his running away from school and settling penniless in London. His meeting with Ann, their passionate love, brief companionship, and tragic parting, goes to the making of one of the loveliest and most pathetic love stories in the English language.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
