Teulu'r Mans: Welsh serial

BBC Home Service Welsh

by. Thomas Hardy
A serial in twelve episodes adapted for radio by Frederick Bradnum
EPISODE 12
Produced by Brandon Acton-Bond
Eustacia felt unable to defend herself fully against the broken-hearted rage of Clym and left him and the cottage for ever, not caring whether she lived or died. Eventually she reached her grand-father's house. On November 5, Charley, thinking to please her, lit a bonfire which Wildeve mistook for her signal. He asked her to run away with him. Late one night she left her grandfather's house to meet him for the journey.
Meanwhile Clym, repenting of his anger too late, sent Eustacia a letter asking her to return. That same wild night Captain Vye discovered her absence and hastened to Clym's cottage. There he found Thomasin, newly arrived, to tell of the disappearance of her husband, Wildeve.
