Full Cast Dramatisation.
A BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation of Evelyn Waugh's stunning, tragi-comic novel of the lives, loves and mores of the English aristocracy.
Charles Ryder is a naive, middleclass student at Oxford University when he is befriended by the beautiful and spoiled Sebastian Flyte - an overgrown child with a taste for alcohol and the finer things in life.
Charles develops an intense relationship with Sebastian and each member of his dysfunctional yet charming, Catholic family who reside at Brideshead Castle, where the Flyte family fortune is steadily declining.
Set in post WWII Britain, 'Brideshead Revisited' is a complex coming-of-age story which skilfully portrays the dysfunctions and excesses of a great Catholic family in a doomed aristocratic age.
