By Lydia Avilov, adapted for radio by Carolyn Sally Jones from the translation by David Magarshack.

When Lydia Avilov died in 1942, her account of her turn-of-the-century love affair with Chekhov was published.

But was it simply a romantic longing of her own imagining? With Janet Suzman and Paul Rhys.

Director Keith Slade.
