After Colin Wilson's brief spell of public adulation in the late 1950s (at the time of The Outsider) many critics and erstwhile admirers pronounced him ' finished.' In fact, Wilson has been writing with extraordinary industry ever since in his cottage in Gorran Haven, Cornwall. His books are still selling well, though less in Britain than abroad.
In this programme WILFRED DE'ATH discusses his writings and philosophy with Wilson himself and with two of his friends, KENNETH ALLSOP and BILL HOPKINS.

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.
