A Play for Broadcasting, in One Act, by W. H. Roberts.
Played by The Station Radio Players

The Spirit of Autumn
Scene: A Kitchen in the Farmhouse at Greenglade in the West Country
Time: An Autumn evening
John, the farmhand, is willing, but clumsy and stupid: Ethel Bridge is anxiously supervising his labours, for she is trying to get her luggage out of her husband's house without his knowledge.
The lure of the stage has seized her once more, so that she forgets the ill-health and sordid penury from which John Bridge rescued her; yet had he only appeared on the cinema screen, he would have seemed to her the ideal of manhood.


Writer: W. H. Roberts
Dick Bridge, a young, well-to-do farmer: George Holloway
Ethel Bridge, his wife: Dorothy Holloway
John, a farm labourer: Sidney Evans
The Spirit of the Woods: Kathleen Sutton
The Spirit of the Open Air: Mary Morgan

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.
