The Play—9

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
' On Acting'
E. MARTIN BROWNE
This talk on acting is probably the most vital of the series so far as the individual amateur player is concerned. Although the art of acting cannot be finally reduced to a set of rules, there is a well-defined technique that must be acquired. This evening, E. Martin Browne will outline some of the points that all amateurs should study: tempo and inflection, 'jumping on cues', voice control, natural movements, and repose, 'waiting' for laughs, and last, but not least, learning their lines because they cannot begin to act until they are letter perfect. Martin Browne will explain how an actor should approach his part, and how he may best benefit by rehearsing his lines at home.

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.
