Compiled by MADELEINE BINGHAM from the correspondence between Princess Lieven and Francois Guizot with Dorothy Tutin and Julian Glover
In 1837 the Russian Princess Dorothee Lieven was living alone in self-exile in Paris. At 51, she was a charming elegant and wilful lady, feared as a political intriguer. She was also the frequently unfaithful wife of a dull Russian Ambassador.
Francois Guizot was 54, a former professor at the Sorbonne, a statesman and future French Ambassador at St James's Court, and a widower.
He was destined to be her last and most devoted lover.
Directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS Stereo (R) Revised

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.
