The Browning Version (1985) Starring Judi Dench and Ian Holme was broadcast on British TV and was nominated for the 1986 BAFTA TV Award for Best Single Drama. The Terence Rattigan play has been produced several times and this version is perhaps the most obscure. Directed by Michael A. Simpson, it tells the story of Andrew Crocker-Harris, an embittered and disliked teacher of Greek and Latin at a British prep school. After nearly 20 years of service, he is being forced to retire on the pretext of his health, and perhaps may not even be given a pension. The boys regard him as overly strict, with some justification. His wife Laura (Judi Dench) is unfaithful, and lives to wound him any way she can. Andrew must come to terms with his failed life and regain at least his own self-respect. This recording is nearly complete and has survived since broadcast in 1985 on video tape.
