A Sense of Loss Evelyn Waugh

Ronald Harwood tells the story of the circumstances and events which inspired Decline and Fall, Brideshead Revisited and The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold and, through the history of these books, draws a picture of one of the most accomplished English writers of the 20th century.
Underneath the comic surface of Evelyn Waugh 's writing there is a great sense of sadness at the ridiculous and pointless ways in which human life is spent and wasted. Beneath his formidable public personality and outspoken behaviour, he concealed enormous sensitivity, melancholy and nostalgia for lost happiness and beauty.

Evelyn Waugh

' Shocked by a bad bottle of wine, an impatient stranger, or a fault in syntax, his mind, like a cinema camera, tracked in furiously forward to confront the offending object, with glaring lens ... he was absurd to many, but to some formidable.' A devastating self-portrait by Evelyn Waugh from the opening of one of his last books. The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold, which he frankly admitted was autobiographical. Evelyn Waugh died ten years ago and his personality is still an enigma to many.
This portrait of the writer is written by DOROTHY BAKER and based on CHRISTOPHER SYKES 'S recent biography.
Evelyn Waugh Hugh Burden Narrator David March with the recorded voices of HAROLD ACTON , GORONWY REES FLORA ROBSON and EVELYN WAUGH himself Producer HELEN FRY






About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.
