: Exiles

by JAMES JOYCE
Harold Pinter 's Mermaid Theatre production re-created for radio.
James Joyce , who was born in 1882, left Dublin with Nora Barnacle in 1904. They lived in Trieste until 1915. They had two children, a boy and a girl. Exiles was published in Paris in 1918, four years before Ulysses. Joyce did not see the play performed.
The play takes place at Merlion and Ranelagh, two suburbs of Dublin.
The play had a vibrant tension wholly suited to the closeness of radio as a medium and the performances of Vivien Merchant, John Wood , Timothy West and Lynn Farleigh seemed pitched perfectly to the appropriate atmosphere of emotional eavesdropping

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.
