: Play of the Month: Maigret at Bay

by Georges Simenon
Television play by Donald Bull
[Starring] Rupert Davies
with Helen Shingler, Neville Jason, Gillian Hills, Yootha Joyce
Music by Ron GRAINER
Script editor, Rosemary Hill Designer, Eileen Diss
Producer, CEDRIC MESSINA
Directed by WILLIAM SLATER

Maigret at Bay
Rupert Davies returns in his most famous role for Play of the Month's presentation of Simenon's recent Maigret novel - tonight at 8.15

Even Commissaire Maigret must get old one day, and in Maigret at Bay he is beginning to feel his age.
He is, naturally, as busy as ever and particularly concerned with a chain of daring jewel-robberies. But, all the same, he is only five years off retirement and a little worried about his weight, his insomnia, his restless habit of looking out of windows, which Dr. Pardon says is a symptom of claustrophobia.
Mme. Maigret thinks they should be looking round for a cottage in the country; a place where property is still reasonable and the fishing good.
It is unfortunate for Maigret that he should be having one of his wakeful nights when a girl called Nicole telephones him. She is a stranger to Paris and obviously very distressed. She has fallen into bad company and been doped and robbed.
Maigret goes to her rescue-after all, he's not sleepy! The next day he is summoned to the Prefet - a new-broom who disapproves of Maigret's highly personal methods - and is handed a deposition made by Nicole in which she accuses Maigret of attempted rape....
Donald Bull, himself one-time editor of the Maigret series, has dramatised Simenon's novel and explored every twist and turn of its ingenious story. And by the time Dr. Pardon comes to his old friend Maigret's fiftieth birthday dinner, perhaps the Commissaire no longer feels quite so ready for the grass or that '... every time I pass an angler on the quays, I see myself in five years' time.'

An overpowering experience, I've never been more moved by a piece of television. PETER BLACK, DAILY MAIL
Much better than a mere tribute. It evokes an enormous nostalgia.

What was so moving was the very ' ordinariness ' of this girl, called on to become a great artist ' then called on for something more: to die on the very threshold of her maturity.

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.
