From an idea by:
Countries taking part in the European television programme exchange have each made a film about one of their principal cities.
Although not in Europe, the Moroccan Television Service is a member of the European Broadcasting Union and has contributed this film to the series.
The time is warm September; the place a villa on the coast near Cannes where lives Clare, Comtesse de Vernay, and Alexis Mouranoff. She was formerly a great opera singer, he was once a fashionable painter, and the villa is a house of regrets, half-hearted hopes, and memories, its only real life coming from Nicole, the pretty young maid. But now visitors arrive: Angela Dale-Adams, an attractive Englishwoman in her late thirties, recently divorced, her seventeen-year-old son Simon, and Simon's tutor for the holidays, Charles Latimer, who turns out to be different from the expected dry-as-dust schoolmaster. In the circumstances romantic attachments are inevitable, and we see how love is different for the elderly, the ageing, and the very young.

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.
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.
