Written by Colin Wills
Produced by Christopher Sykes
The artist's relations to his raw material arc often misunderstood, and the model is rarely pleased with the picture- even if it turns out to be a masterpiece. Colin Wills gives impressions of reactions in West Africa to Graham Greene's novel of Colonial life, The Heart of the Matter.

A consideration of George Gissing by Walter Allen with Charles E. Stidwill as George Gissing
Production by Douglas Cleverdon
' Poor Gissing , said Henry James , ' struck me ... as quite particularly marked out for what is called in his and my profession an unhappy ending.' Out of his tragic life Gissing produced a number of novels that present, from the point of view of an intellectual who could find for himself no niche in society, a unique picture of the last decades of the nineteenth century in England. In this programme the man and his fiction are discussed by a novelist of today.
