: THE WEDNESDAY PLAY

A Bit of Crucifixion, Father by JULIA JONES
with WALTER FITZGERALD
VALERIE WHITE
MARGERY MASON
ALAN LAKE
Designer, Raymond London
Script editor, Shaun MacLoughlin
Producer. GRAEME McDONALD
Directed by GEOFFREY NETHERCOTT
The teaching about artificial birth control in the recent Papal Encyclical on marriage has resulted in a furore not only within the Roman Catholic Church. Tonight's play illustrates this controversy in human terms and also from the woman's point of view. The Kellys have several children, and another is on the way. Edna Kelly, the mother and a convert, has been advised by her doctor that for health reasons she should have an abortion. But as a Catholic, and a woman, such an action seems unthinkable to her.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
