Summary

A BBC Radio six-part dramatisation of Marcel Proust's groundbreaking series of novels, tracing the extraordinary story of the author's own life. Starring James Wilby and Jonathan Firth, and with a distinguished cast including Harriet Walter, Imogen Stubbs, and Corin Redgrave, this rich, multi-layered adaptation brings out all the variety and subtlety of Proust's magnificent masterpiece. Featuring a fictional version of himself - 'Marcel' - and a host of friends, acquaintances, and lovers, In Search of Lost Time is Proust's search for the key to the mysteries of memory, time, and consciousness. As he recalls his childhood days, the sad affair of Charles Swann and Odette de Crecy, his transition to manhood, the tortures of love and the ravages of war, he realises that the simplest of discoveries can lead to astonishing possibilities.

BBC does Proust proud

An enchanting journey into Proust's greatest work, with the BBC's typical attention to sound quality. A difficult work is made approachable and mesmerising. Recommended to be listened to in the highest quality possible. It's a little like falling into someone else's mind.

Wonderful

Any additional comments?

I have wanted to read Proust for a while now, but was always a little daunted so opted for this wonderful BBC production and loved it. I now feel ready to start all the seven original/unabridged novels. Highly recommended.

Absolutely First Class Drama!

Any adaption of literature is not really easy. This drama has reached an excellent height to make this complex novel understandable and compelling. Very sensitive, profound voice of narrator and all outstanding actors. Thanks for BBC and fiction factory produced such beautiful work!
