Noel Coward - This Happy Breed - BBC Radio Drama - cheops
Noel Coward`s play covering 20 years from when the Gibbons family moves in to their new home to when they leave it.
Noel Coward`s play covers a 20-year period from June 1919, when the Gibbons family move in to their new home near Clapham Common, to June 1939, when they leave it. With humour and pathos Coward shows what life was like for a typical suburban family between the two world wars.
(from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Happy_Breed )
The play very subtly hints at the non-violent ways in which social justice issues might be incorporated into post-war national reconstruction, examines the personal trauma caused by the sudden death of sons and daughters, and also hints at the forthcoming return of English men from the war. It is also an intimate portrait of the economy and politics of Great Britain in the 1920s and 30s, as well as showing the advances in technology - we see the arrival of primitive crystal radio sets, home gas lights being replaced by electric lights, the arrival of telephones and mass broadcast radio.
John Moffatt, Doris Hare, Rosemary Leach, Robert Lang and Michael Maloney.
It was directed by Glyn Dearman and first broadcast in September 1989.
One episode of approximately 90 minutes.
The play was the subject of a highly successful feature-film adaptation in 1944. Directed by David Lean as his first major movie as sole director, it was the most successful cinema film of 1944, and was shot in colour. The cast included Robert Newton, Celia Johnson, Stanley Holloway, John Mills, Kay Walsh, and Alison Leggatt. The film included narration by Sir Laurence Olivier.
