Description

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.

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!

Top class drama

Michael Butt's adaptation and writing is brilliant, the acting outstanding, the music atmospheric. In fine, there's everything one could wish for in a BBC drama.

Each of the six episodes is just under an hour: Swann's Way, The Budding Grove, The Guermantes Way, Sodom and Gomorrah, The Prisoner and the Fugitive, and Time Regained.

When I was a young girl, I was surrounded by francophones who all but worshipped Proust. The paeans of adoration were unending! Sadly, even into university days, I just didn't get it: I gave up on Swann's Way before it ended.

It took decades for me to approach Proust once more, read him carefully, and only then did I begin to understand and appreciate what he has to offer. While he still isn't a favorite, I do revisit him from time to time.

I highly recommend this selection. For me, it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon, madeleines included, and provided an escape from the relentless election madness.

(Note: There are some "adult situations," however, so keep this in mind should you have young children present).

This audiobook became my permanent companion

Proust made me retrieve moments of my past. Perhaps forgotten or unobserved before. He helped me find key answers of myself.

worth it

This performance is fantastic. perfect for listening to on lengthy bus rides in Guatemala!
It is safe to say that I would not have gotten around to reading In Search of Lost Time, and without this BBC performance I would've missed this experience all together. Somehow Proust's often-insufferable narrator dispenses minute parcels of wisdom betwixt vivid memories and those little wisdom nuggets are, at times, astonishing.

The acting, music and story were so beautiful. I wish it didn't have to end.

Yes, this is how it is.

A beautiful portrait of time, with some colorful characters and quite a bit of less-than-admirable behavior. Made me want to read the actual books, certainly.

Search of the lost time

Dieses Hörspiel wurde von der BBC brillant in Szene gesetzt. Es ist ein wahrer Genuß für Ohren und Gemüt.
Von der ersten Minute an war ich gefangen in den Erinnerungen des genialen Marcel Proust und es fällt mir nach wie vor nicht leicht, aus dieser "anderen Welt" wieder aufzutauchen.

Zur Handlung selbst mag ich mich hier nicht auslassen - es gibt viele Quellen, aus denen der interessierte Leser Informationen schöpfen kann.

Der Hörer sollte auf Bandwurmsätze gefasst sein und mit einem gemächlichen Fortschritt der Handlung rechnen. Mich hat beides nicht gestört!

Great.

Just how the author said in the end. This is not a good book. Neither is it bad. This is just how it is... A journey through life, love, loss and emotions which will make you relive and refeel old memories.
