: Hugh Burden and Annabel Maule in ' OF HUMAN BONDAGE'

by W. Somerset Maugham
Adapted for radio as a serial in twelve parts by Howard Agg
Produced by Anthony Pelissier
8—' Ultimate Folly'
Philip is now studying medicine in London. After failing one examination he is overcome by a desire to see Mildred again and goes to the teashop in Parliament Street. He takes her out, and realises that he is still as much in love with her as ever.
Herbert Lawson has returned to England, and they reminisce about Heidelberg and Paris days. Philip tells Lawson that Mildred has turned him down and is now married to Miller, a salesman. Lawson introduces Philip to a young woman, Mrs. Nesbit, who writes stories for a magazine; she is a cheerful, kind person, and Philip finds her a delightful companion. After a party in Herbert's flat, Philip returns home and finds Mildred waiting for him-her husband has left her penniless and she is expecting a baby. In despair Philip realises that, in spite of everything, he has never ceased to love her.

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.
