: Edgar Wallace - The Man who Made his Name

A documentary biography written and narrated by James Cameron.
' It is impossible not to be thrilled by Edgar Wallace ' was the cry in the 1920s, as a stream of best-sellers flowed from the dictaphone of one of the greatest popular entertainers of all time.
But the story of Edgar Wallace 's life is as remarkable as any of his fictions. He was born on 1 April
1875, the illegitimate son of a small-time actress. In 56 years he became, among other things, newspaper seller, medical orderly, poet, war correspondent, editor, tipster, novelist, dramatist, film-maker, racehorse owner, impresario, politician. He made fortunes, and spent them again on his two enduring loves-the Stage and the Turf. He died in Hollywood in 1932, while writing King Kong. He was a man larger than life. This programme includes clips from films of Edgar Wallace 's stories-The Four Just Men, Sanders of the River, The Squeaker (with Alastair Sim ), The Terror (with Wilfrid Lawson ) and The Clue of the New Pin (with John Gielgud ).
Among contributors with memories of Edgar Wallace are Lord Cudlipp Dorothy Dickson , Cathleen Nesbitt Sir Carol Reed

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.

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.
