by DON TAYLOR with Barry Foster as the Man and David March. Ellen Dryden
Dialogues for String Quartet on a theme of William Lawes composed and conducted by H. R. CHAPPELL and played by THE SIDNEY SAX QUARTET
Don Taylor says of his new Play for radio: 'A modern man sits in a small room with gun-fire outside. His curtains are drawn But his world and his conflicts are ours, and society answers his plea for artistic detachment in the most positive way. Whilst reading Andrew Marvell, his life and the poet's inter-act.
Marvell had two years of peace at Nunappleton House in Yorkshire. writing most of his greatest poetry whilst tutor to the daughter of General Fairfax. In 1650 the powerful General had retired prematurely from the Civil War. The play dramatises this period of Marvell's life, studying the forces of conscience and responsibility in the shape of the General, who relinquished his commitment and the poet who took it up.

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.
