BBC Radio 4 Extra will broadcast an adaptation of Waugh’s short story “Mr. Loveday’s Little Outing.” This will be a 45-minute performance transmitted tomorrow (Wednesday, 11 November) at 11:15 and 21:15 British time. It will be available on the internet shortly after the performance (presumably meaning the first performance) and can be listened to via BBC iPlayer on computers, tablets or smart phones. The story was first published in 1935 in Nash’s Pall Mall Magazine under the title “Mr. Crutwell’s Little Outing” but was retitled “Mr. Loveday’s Little Outing” in subsequent publications on advice of counsel. Dean C.R.M.F. Cruttwell was Waugh’s tutor at Hertford College, Oxford, and the two did not get along very well. The story is currently available in Complete Short Stories.
