or A Dream for All Seasons
'Last night I dreamed that I was a butterfly; and now I do not know whether I am a man dreaming that he was a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming it is a man.'
Whether it is in a sleep-laboratory experiment, a psychiatrist's consulting room. a scientist's inspiration or an out-of-the-body excursion, the Dream (whatever it may be) is involved.

Was Jim Jones , the leader of the People's Temple (whose members committed mass suicide in Guyana in 1978) insane? If he was, then the madness did not manifest itself so much in the new social order he intended to create, but in the methods he used to bring it about - the methods of a paranoid whose mind was under the constant influence of drugs.

I don't write about villains and lovers, but I do write about the possessed or the obsessed...
A William Trevor novel, short story, or television play is instantly recognisable by its remarkable combination of the comic, the grotesque and the tragic. His first novel, The Old Boys, which won the Hawlhornden Prize in 1964, concerned the septuagenarian intrigues surrounding the election of a chairman for an Old Boys' Association.
In his latest hook Other People's World published this week, the worlds of a middle-aged widow and an actor collide with horrific results.
WILLIAM TREVOR talks to Mark Storey about his diverse activities as novelist, short-story writer and dramatist.

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.
