Mr. MARTIN SABINE: Repertory through the Ages'


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.
DESPITE many gloomy prognostications, neither the star system nor the touring - company has succeeded in killing the repertory theatre. Much of the most interesting experimental work in the modern theatre has been done by repertory companies here and America, so that lately ' repertory ' has - acquired a dual meaning—on the one hand, the advanced, 'art' type of theatre, and on the other, the good oM-fashioned heavy drama. Even in London repertory of the old type still t hrives, down at the Elephant (whither Maria Marten has been drawing all the West-end), op at Collins's, in Islington, and not least at the Regent Theatre, where Mr. Martin Sabine 's own company is enjoying great success. In his talk he will deal with the stock companies of yesterday and of today.

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.
