Noel Coward - Blithe Spirit

When writer Charles Condomine holds a séance, he gets an unexpected ghostly visitation from his first wife. Stars Roger Allam.

When novelist Charles Condomine invites a medium to hold a séance at his country house, he anticipates little more than some harmless fakery and a lot of good material for his new novel.

Instead, he gets a ghostly visitation from his dead first wife, rather to the chagrin of his very much alive second one...

Noël Coward's classic comedy adapted for radio by Bert Coules.
