I am going to attempt this again – starting tomorrow on Radio 4. My original rating is a 1* and room 101, so let’s see if I can get more out of it through the BBC.

Right here we go:
Blurb:‘Stately plump’ Buck Mulligan calls Stephen Dedalus to the top of the Martello tower overlooking Dublin Bay – and so begins James Joyce’s celebrated account of the 16th June 1904. The combined stories of Stephen and Leopold Bloom as they meander through the city.
In a landmark project a new dramatisation of Ulysses is broadcast across one day – morning, afternoon and evening. With live commentary from Mark Lawson, broadcasting from Dublin. Dramatised by Robin Brooks.
