Wharton's 150th from the BBC
It’s the 150th anniversary of Edith Wharton’s birth, and the digital network Radio 4 Extra is marking it with vintage adaptations of her work from the BBC’s vast archive.

First up Anna Massey stars in Madame de Treymes (Sunday, 1.30pm), a powerful tale of romance, intrigue and power struggles.

Then at 2.30pm, it’s Female Ghost starring Buffy Davis and John Guerrasio as an American couple in England who find their past catching up with them.
