February 6 was the date originally arranged for this programme, but Victoria Hopper and Basil Dean are able to appear before the television camera this evening, a fortnight earlier.
Victoria Hopper was born in Vancouver and originally studied operatic singing - she has a fine soprano voice, which listeners heard recently. Her first important stage success was in the name part of Jean Jacques Bernard's "Martine". She is now one of the most brilliant actresses on the West End stage.
Basil Dean, her husband, is a well-known theatrical figure. He has been actor, producing manager, stage director, dramatic critic, and author. His many successful West End stage productions include "The Skin Game", "A Bill of Divorcement", "Loyalties", "East of Suez", "R.U.R.", "Rain", "The Vortex", "Young Woodley", "Autumn Crocus", "Service", and "Call It a Day". As a film producer he has been responsible for "The Constant Nymph" and "Lorna Doone", in both of which his wife starred.

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.
