Told by an Am;el
and Clive Baxter , Muriel Pavlow , William Trent , Norman Shelley , Lloyd Pearson (by permission of Lee Ephraim ),
Stephen Jack , Norman Wooland
Written and produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
This afternoon the Angel will introduce his two charges, Mark and Prudence, to the great dramatic poem 'Job'.
As the Biblical text is written in the form of drama, little but selection and commentary by the Angel has been found necessary. The play falls naturally into three parts: (1) The Prologue in Heaven ; (2) Job's argument with the Three Comforters ; and (3) the great speech of the Voice in the Whirlwind, followed by Job's humble reply and his final reinstatement in prosperity.
Half an hour is all too little for
' Job ', and only a glimpse of Job's quarrel with the Comforters can be given. Neverthefess, some attempt has been made to distinguish their respective characters and lines of argument.

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.
