: AN AGE OF KINGS

The Pageant of English History written by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Henry VI
Part One
A second showing of 9: THE RED ROSE
AND THE WHITE
Characters in order of appearance: Uncles to the King and Protectors:
Music by CHRISTOPHER WHELEN
Title music by SIR ARTHUR BLISS Designer, Stanley Morris
Directed by Michael Hayes Produced by PETER DEWS
The English victory at Agincourt confirmed Henry V as an outstanding military leader and a greatly loved King. The ensuing treaty with France and Henry's marriage to Princess Katherine promised both kingdoms a long period of peace and prosperity. But Henry V died young, leaving an infant son behind him in the protectorship of his brothers Bedford and Gloucester. War now flares up again in France; and at home, leaderless nobles revive their disastrous quarrel about the rightful succession.

"Forget about booking me a fancy hotel suite — I'm staying the week with my folks at Salford" (News of the World)
"Gas bills, coal bills, laundry bills - everybody has them. But for me they're too much. They defeat me" (Daily Mail)
"When I'm good, the play is bloody marvellous. When I'm bad, it's awful" (Daily Mirror)
"I am not interested in making a tremendous amount of money. Just enough to enable me to write out the odd cheque for twenty-five pounds or a hundred pounds." (Daily Herald)
"I hate being committed—to a girl, or a film producer, or being a certain kind of big screen image." (Evening Standard)
"I want to be a star because I can act, not because my name happens to be as well known as a much plugged detergent." (Daily Mirror)

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.

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