Classic Serial: The Turn of the Screw

By Henry James. A new version of the classic Victorian ghost story. When a new young governess arrives at Bly, a remote country house in Essex, she fears that her two young charges may be hiding a dark secret. Dramatised by Neville Teller. Director Peter Leslie Wild Repeated on Saturday at 9pm

A country house, two children, their new governess and ghostly goings-on in Henry James's The Turn of theScrew The Turn of the Screw

3.00pm R4 FM Henry James's novel must be one of the scariest stories of all time, so close the curtains and get ready for the hairs on your arms to stand on end in this dramatisation by Neville Teller. The story centres on a young governess, sent to a country house to look after a London gentleman's nephew and niece. The children, Miles and Flora, seem almost too angelic to be true at first, but who is that man with curly red hairand sharp eyes that keeps staring at Miles, and why is Flora getting out of bed at night to look at a mysterious woman in the garden? Cathy Sara (whom you may remember as Lauren Walsh from The Archers, one of the women who had the misfortune of being two-timed by Tom Archer) plays the governess who may have stumbled upon some evil ghostly forces at work or, alternatively, could easily be a psychologically damaged woman who poses a potentially terrible danger to her charges.

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.
