|Journey To The End Of The Night||20010128|
Robert McNab reconstructs the extraordinary journey across a bombed-out Europe made by the French novelist Louis Ferdinand Celine towards the end of the Second World War.
Celine had made his name in the 1930s with the novel `Journey to the End of the Night', before siding with the Vichy regime during the occupation and fleeing to Germany just before the Normandy landings.
This flight provided material for a final trilogy of halucinatory novels - `Castle to Castle', `North' and `Rigadoon'.
With Kenneth Cranham as Celine.
