Sunday-Night Theatre presents: All You Young Lovers


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.
by Jack Pulman
The play is set in a house in West London, at the present time.

For young Harvey Green, life has reached a baffling crossroads. At seventeen, with his schooling over and his future uncertain, he lives with his widower father and sister in a crumbling, characterless part of London which has nothing to offer save despair. But Harvey is sensitive and intelligent, though at variance with the world he has been born into. With his father contemplating a second marriage and trying to steer him into some kind of secure employment, Harvey's dreams seem remote and beyond fulfilment.
In this first play for BBC television, Jack Pulman has carefully created the atmosphere and the awkwardness of adolescence and set it realistically in the surroundings of a home divided within itself.

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.
