: Two Plays

Comedy
'THE SEA IN A SHELL'
A Study in Conversation by LANCE SlEVEKING
Characters :
Walter Dieaway , a Very Young Man
Mrs. Dieaway, his Mother
Colonel George Black , an Old Friend
Miss Rymmage, a Brilliant Business Women and Gilbert Flavington , the well-known Poet
THIS ' study in conversation ' offers variations on the theme that imagination, safe enough for poets, is dangerous stuff for colonels, business women, old ladies, and young men. The sounds to be heard by a sensitive ear from a sea-shell provide a means of test. It is not the poet who hears most or is best pleased by the experiment.
Tragedy
' MARKHEIM'
A Play
Adapted by URSULA BRANSTON from the story by ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
Markheim. The Money Lender
The Stranger
The Maidservant
THIS short play, adapted from the story by Robert Louis Stevenson , presents the drama of conflicting desires in the soul of Markheim. Good intentions and evil deeds war for supremacy. He murders an old antique dealer for money, and the spirit of evil promises him a way of release by yet more crimes. Markheim finds his solution and the play its surprise ending in one decisive dramatic act of will.
The Cast of both Plays includes :
Eric Anderson , Gladys Young , Gordon McLeod , Violet Marquesita , Alfred Gray , Francis L. Sullivan , Christopher Christian , Alec Macdonald ,
Ethel Lodge , Harold Scott
Both Plays produced by LANCE SIEVEKING

WEATHER FORECAST, SECOND GENERAL News BULLETIN

: The Washington Bi-centenary Commemoration SPEECHES

by The Right Hon.
WINSTON S. CHURCHILL, C.H., M.P., and Dr. NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER, Ph.D., LL.D., at the Dinner given by the PILGRIMS OF GREAT BRITAIN, at the HOTEL VICTORIA
A FEAST of oratory rich in interesting contrasts in stylo is relayed tonight from the Washington Bi-Centenary Celebrations at the Hotel Victoria. Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, educationalist and internationalist, displays American speaking at its best, while Mr. Winston Churchill is one of the few speakers of our time who rank with Chatham, Burke, Fox, and Gladstone in the succession of great English-speaking orators.
Anglo-American relations will be the theme of all the speakers, assembled to commemorate the birth of the man who consolidated the union of the United States, and became their first and most famous President.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
AT the rise of the curtain (Intrata) Pomona, goddess of fruits, and her nymphs are dis- covered in an orchard in a wood near Rome.
The sound of a hunting horn is heard (Corante).
The god Vertumnus and his train of immortals, all wearing hunting attire, enter. Vertumnus makes attempts to gain favour with Pomona, but she repulses him, and then, frightened by the bolder advances of Vertumnus and the immortals, she and her nymphs fly into the woods, Pomona with the eldest. Vertumnus watches her departure ; then, disgusted with the failure of his disguise, expresses his chagrin in a dance.
Pomona comes back timidly and expresses her sense of isolation in a dance (Pastorale).
The nymphs re-enter timidly, but are disappointed to find the hunters gone, and dance (Minuet) with melancholy. They are interrupted by the return of the immortals, who, having discarded their hunting attire, make a gentler entry this time. Pomona comes back quietly, and, unnoticed, looks on while the immortals succeed, little by little, in gaining favour with the nymphs and leading them away, one by one. At the end she is again alone.
Vertumnus returns disguised as a lady of uncertain age. He endeavours to comfort Pomona (Passacaglia). He succeeds. They go.
Divertissement (Rigadoon) danced by the nymphs and immortals.
Vertumnus, having put aside his disguise, comes back to the orchard with Pomona. They dance a pas de deux (Siciliana) expressive of their love for each other.
Joyous return of nymphs and immortals
(March). Nuptial dance. Procession. Solemn entry of Flamen Pomonalis , who gives the nuptial benediction.

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.
