Much different from the Stanley Kubrick film

Normally when one hears the title "A Clockwork Orange", one thinks of the Stanley Kubrick film starring Malcolm McDowell. I had since discovered that the novel from which the film was adapted had an original final chapter in which Alex decides to start a new life. This original ending is presented here in the BBC Radio 4 dramatization interspersed with appropriate musical numbers.
