Dignity, which was also broadcast yesterday afternoon in the National programme, is a specially written radio play. It is the touching story of the most important event in a woman's life, told by a talkative landlady to an impatient lodger.
Teresa Deevy, who lives near Waterford, is deaf, and although she has seen her plays on the stage of the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, she has never heard one. Her first play was produced at the Abbey about ten years ago; she has followed it with five or six others, all in the same somewhat Chekhovian vein. Two of them, In Search of Valour and The King of Spain's Daughter, have been broadcast in the Northern Ireland programme, and The King of Spain's Daughter was televised not long ago. Viewers will also see In Search of Valour in June.

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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
