Play of the Month – A Passage to India

Play of the Month ran from 1965 to 1983. This notable adaptation of E.M.Forster's novel stars Sybil Thorndike as Mrs Moore, Virginia McKenna as Adela Quested, Zia Mohyeddin as Dr Aziz and Cyril Cusack as Mr Fielding. Waris Hussein directed this production, which is considered more faithful to the letter of Forster's novel than David Lean's film. (Original tx 16/11/1965; BBC2 repeat 26/06/92)
