Mahler Symphony No 2 (Resurrection)
By Vladimir Nabokov. Dramatised by Craig Higginson.
Set in Berlin, in a period moving inexorably towards the Second World War, this is the story of the downfall of a middle-aged married man who becomes infatuated with a young woman he meets in the cinema. She uses him with startling callousness and ultimately destroys him. This darkly erotic dramatisation comes to vivid life as events unfold in the mind of a man who can only guess at the gross betrayals inflicted on him by a younger and more ruthless generation.
Writer and critic Darryl Pinckney presents a portrait of James Baldwin , one of the giants of 20th-century American literature. In many ways his essays, plays and novels explored aspects of his own life -growing up in the church in Harlem and fleeing segregated America for Europe to become one of the most articulate voices of the civil rights movement. Producer Tony Phillips
