The Passing of a Humorist Reflections upon the life and passing of Jerome K. Jerome by ANTHONY LALLY
In June 1927, while on a motoring holiday, Jerome K. Jerome , author of Three Men in a Boat, suffered a stroke and spent two weeks, speechless and semi-paralysed, in Northampton General
Hospital. This play is not a biography, but -by entering the mind of Jerome K. Jerome as he lies dying - attempts, not without a certain humorous detachment, to give an impression of his life, thoughts and ideas.
Directed by GLYN DEARMAN (The full binaural effect of this programme can be achieved by listening through stereo headphones)

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.
