The Distinguished Thing

Afternoon Drama, Final Demands Episode 6 of 6

Series of plays by Frederic Raphael reuniting the characters from his novel The Glittering Prizes, which followed the fortunes of scholarship boy Adam Morris and his contemporaries at Cambridge University in the early 1950s.

Adam and the friends and enemies who started out together as Cambridge undergraduates find that it's now 50 years since they set out on their winding, interlocking paths. But it's Adam's brother Derek who holds the key to how the story ends.
