Friends recall Samuel Beckett's school days.

Listen back to 1976 when Beckett’s school friends, Douglas Graham and Edward Cox, spoke about his school days in Portora Royal School, Enniskillen, County Fermanagh. 

These interviews are taken from the programme ‘The Life and Work of Samuel Beckett’, broadcast in 1976. They were rebroadcast in the programme 'Bookweek' in May 1984.

The accompanying photograph shows Marie Keane in Samuel Beckett's 'Happy Days'.

Samuel Beckett, author and Nobel Prize winner, died in Paris on 22 December 1989.
