When he wasn't writing Maigret, Georges Simenon produced a huge body of novels and short stories, often tough, gripping and psychologically-penetrating dissections of lives confounded by fate. In The Other Simenon we explore more of his dark tales of human misfortune!

In The Neighbours, Emile Jovis, the director of a Paris travel agency, finds that moving home doesn't always make for a better life. Acting from the best possible motives he decides to uproot his family from their dilapidated flat in the Marais district of Paris to a new development outside the city. All too soon, however, he becomes aware that his wife and son do not share his enthusiasm. And his peace of mind is shattered when he overhears a series of blunt and brusque conversations coming from his neighbours' flat. His irritation on hearing their voices leads to an obsessive interest in their world.

Dramtised by Ronald Frame and starring Jamie Glover and Robin Weaver.

Other parts played by members of the cast.

Producer/Director: David Ian Neville.

The Venice Train is a classic Simenon study of anxiety. Justin Calmar returns early from holiday. On board the express train to Paris he is asked by a stranger to deliver a briefcase to an address in Lausanne. He subsequently makes two discoveries: the first, that there is a dead body in the apartment, the second that the suitcase contains a fortune in paper currency. He flees, on the next rapide to Paris condemning himself to an existence of lies and fear, with seemingly no way out.

Dramatised by Ronald Frame and starring Paul Bown and Clare Corbett.
