"William Gerhardie is Alive and Well"
Once called 'the pet of the intelligentsia and the darling of Mayfair,' adopted by Lord Beaverbrook as the white hope of English literature, William Gerhardie published the first of his many novels 50 years ago. Since then somehow he's got lost to view.
But today he's still writing - a vast unpublished tetralogy of novels - and tonight, from the flat he's been living in for 40 years, with curtains drawn day and night, surrounded by files and card indexes and the mementos of a childhood spent in Imperial Russia, William Gerhardie tells the story of his life.
"How to Sculpt a Garden"
Not a handbook for horticulturists, nor anything to do with decorative gnomes - but the sculpture of Iver Abrahams, who draws on the English garden for his inspiration.
His ' gardens' are now on view in a new West End gallery, and tonight he brings them to the studio.

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.
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.
