TROOP from Let Us Now Praise Famous Men by JAMES AGEE with Stuart Milligan as James Agee and Peter Marinker as Walker Evans
In 1936 James Agee , journalist, and Walker Evans , photographer, were sent to investigate the plight of the poor white tenant farmers in the south of the USA.
They found a way of life that was remote and tragic. They lived with three sharecropper families for one month and combined words and photographs in a record that was eloquent, original and devastating. Agee's deep feeling for the land and its people emerges in a unique style of bitterness and passionate sympathy. With BLAIN FAIRHAN.

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.
