The first of a group of Proust reconstructions by Pamela Hansford Johnson
Produced by Rayner Heppenstall
Date: 1941. The characters from Marcel Proust's A la Recherche du Temps Perdu are imagined to be still in their heyday. with Esm Percy , Oliver Burt. Barbara Trevor , Richard Hurndall ,
Joe Sterne , Malcolm Hayes , Bryan Powley , Raf de la Torre , and Gladys Spencer
Music by Arthur Oldham
This group of programmes, originally broadcast singly between 1948 and 1956, deals variously with characters from, and unexplored situations in, Proust's work. The programmes are to be broadcast at weekly intervals over the next six weeks. The Duchess at Sunset, a pure jeu d'esprit, will be followed by a serious study of the marriage of M. de Charlus, to which A la Recherche alludes only once. Later we shall examine the point of view of Albertine, the curious development of Saint-Loup, Swann's jealousy, and the fulfilment through art of those seemingly wasted lives of which the chief was the composer Vinteuil's.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
