...and a suggestion from Kathy Ackley, to handle the fact that a lot was written about BP:

See Ophia Jane Allen's book, Barbara Pym: Writing a Life (Scarecrow Press, 1994), for articles about Pym. One chapter of Allen's book is a bibliographic essay on critical approaches to Barbara Pym and her novels. The book has a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary materials published up to 1994. Allen provides complete bibliographic information for over 120 periodical articles on Pym, 40 pages of reviews of her work, organized by book title, and 14 dissertations.

In 1991, the BBC broadcasted a BOOKMARK special entitled MISS PYM'S DAY OUT, produced and directed by James Runcie. Barbara Pym was played by Patricia Routledge.

In 1994, BBC Radio 4 broadcasted Elizabeth Proud's adaptation of SOME TAME GAZELLE, in six 30-minutes episodes. Directed by Sioned William, the cast included Miriam Marolyes (Harriet) and Harriet Gordon (Belinda).
