Les Misérables: The Radio Broadcast was a seven-part radio series broadcast July 23 - September 3, 1937, on the Mutual Network. Orson Welles adapted Victor Hugo's novel, directed the series, and starred as Jean Valjean. The 22-year-old Welles developed the idea of telling stories with first-person narration on the series, which was his first job as a writer-director for radio. Les Misérables was one of Welles's earliest and finest achievements on radio, and marked the radio debut of the Mercury Theatre.
