The Revenge


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.
A play for radio without words by Andrew Sachs.
This is an experimental play for radio; an attempt to tell a story in terms of sound alone. There is no dialogue, and no coherent speech, yet the play is a thriller with a straightforward storyline full of action and dramatic tension.
The play was recorded on location using the naturalistic recording techniques of binaural stereo.
With Andrew Sachs as the Man
Other parts played by Graham Ashley, Sean Barrett, Michael Deacon, Blain Fairman, Leonard Fenton, Frances Jeater, Fraser Kerr, Melody Lang, Paul Rosebury, John Rye.
Technical realisation by Lloyd Silverthorne
A Stereo Workshop production
Directed by Glyn Dearman
(The full binaural effect can be achieved by listening through stereo headphones)

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.
