: GIVE ME YOUR WORD

A new game of words and wit
Devised by RAY ALAN
John Junkin asks the questions and stars from Television and Radio give the answers and make the words
This week:
SOFTLY, SOFTLY
V.
I'M SORRY, I'LL READ THAT AGAIN
Director, PATRICIA WOOD
Produced by TONY BROUGHTON
'... and give me your word within the next fifty seconds! ' It is always fascinating to see people reacting spontaneously to an unrehearsed situation. Ask them to make as many three- or four-letter words (in the literal sense, of course) as possible out of a stockpile of letters, trying to use every letter in the pile, and you have plenty of scope for fun and ingenuity.
When the people concerned are stars of television and radio shows, who usually rehearse everything thoroughly, the game is doubly interesting. Flashes of inspiration, impromptu wit, and some brilliantly improvised words (not always to be found in a dictionary!) just happen when the teams take up John Junkin 's challenge. One is never sure what will occur, but the result is certainly well worth watching.

: The Wednesday Play: Blodwen, Home from Rachel's Marriage

by David Rudkin

The Wilderness family is oddly assorted. The Rev. Elwyn Wilderness is a nonconformist preacher whose unconventional behaviour is a constant source of embarrassment to his wife Molly and daughter Blodwen. loan, his son, is also a nonconformist, but he is a painter and, as his family suspects, uninterested in women and marriage. He realises the isolation into which his sister is sinking and urges her to go out and face the world beyond the local Sunday School. However, Blodwen and her mother form a closely knit unit in which any contact with the realities of life is shunned. When Blodwen is finally flung by circumstances into communication with people of her own generation, the experience proves horrifyingly traumatic.

: Animal Business: 3: Zoos

At a time when many species of wildlife are threatened with extinction, the zoo business is booming. Britain can claim a pioneer role in the development of both the privately owned wildlife park and the drive-through safari. Both are capable of important contributions towards the conservation of wildlife; but many reputable zoo directors and animal dealers are worried about the future.
Fyfe Robertson investigates the zoo business and meets some of the world's top animal dealers.

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 information about 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 use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
