“Beckett’s art is an attempt to capture and hold feelings in the knowledge that you’ll constantly fail.”
Melvyn Bragg presents a programme on Irish playwright Samuel Beckett with dramatisations of three of his works - Ghost Trio, ...but the clouds... and Not I. This invaluable resource, which includes contributions from dramatist Martin Esslin and performances by Billie Whitelaw and Ronald Pickup, was created for the BBC as part of The Lively Arts series in 1977.
Both Ghost Trio and ...but the clouds..., originally written for television, receive their world premiere in this fascinating documentary which also explores Beckett’s personal life and work in detail, highlighting his interest in portraying characters who are never quite able to express their emotions.
