'The Future of the Cinema '— II, Mr. MAURICE ELVEY


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.
THE name of Maurice Elvey has been connected with British films from the very earliest years. He will speak tonight as a man thoroughly acquainted with every ' trick of the trade.' In his work as a producer he has consistently kept abreast of the times and adapted his methods to changing fashions in technique. Several of the most considerable British films ' camo from his megaphone,' if we may so phrase it. He made Roses of Picardy, a foolishly titled but sensitively handled version of that great war book ' The Spanish Farm,' Hindle Wakes , in which the dominance of mill machinery over the lives of the cotton hands was suggested with all the ' expressionistic ' skill of a Fritz Lang , The Luck of the Navy and Palais de Danse, shortly to be released. Mr...Elvey is now producer to the Gaumont Company.

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.
