Tom Brown`s Schooldays - BBC Radio Full Cast Drama - cheops
By Thomas Hughes, dramatised by Joe Dunlop.
A classic of Victorian literature, and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys, Tom Brown`s Schooldays has long had an influence well beyond the middle-class, public school world that it describes. An active social reformer, Hughes wrote with a freshness, a lack of cant, and a kind, relaxed tolerance which keeps this novel refreshingly distinct from other schoolboy adventures.
Two episodes of approximately one hour each.
It is the autumn of 1835 and 12-year-old Tom Brown arrives at Rugby school, eager to take part in school life. But Flashman and his cronies have other ideas.
Tom's career at Rugby comes to a premature end, but Dr Arnold has a plan.
Directed by Chris Wallis.
