: THE WEDNESDAY PLAY

Toggle by lAN ROBERTS starring with Incidental music composed by MICHAEL DRESS
Designer, Marilyn Taylor
Producer, GRAEME McDONALD
Directed by WARIS HUSSEIN
Toggle-it's the nickname of eight-year-old Torquil — was adopted in the hope that he would stabilise the marriage of Nigel and Val. But the hope is unfulfilled: Val still runs off with other men. So Toggle becomes the problem of Nigel's sister Celia and brother-in-law Rory. And since their own children have grown up and gone out into the world, Rory is less than delighted to find the calm of his beautiful home disturbed.
A very good Wednesday Play. Good, but bruising NANCY BANKS-SMITH , SUN ... had story, point and superb acting. If the BBC switchboard was jammed it should only have been with grateful calls

: SIR MICHAEL TIPPETT

talks to John Warrack
Tippett has a Quaker mind with Catholic music. T. s. ELIOT
I'm interested in programmes such as 'Top of the Pops' to see the sophistication that has gone into it
SIR MICHAEL TIPPETT
Tippett, who has just completed his third opera Knot Garden, is one of the leading English composers and his own librettist.
He talks about his musical influences and deep interest in the 'musical vernacular ' and also his literary influences, notably Shakespeare and Eliot.
While he does not regard himself as a conventionally religious man, he feels his creative vitality comes from an extreme sense of an inner life. He has, too, a strong practical streak, which reveals itself in his enthusiasm for the Leicestershire Schools Orchestra which he regularly conducts, and a keen interest in all that is happening around him.
Tippett is about to start a third symphony in which he plans to re-explore the Blues, culminating in a set of improvisations which he calls ' wild jazz.'

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.
