' The Arts '-I
Today Sixth Forms are to have the treat and the privilege of hearing a talk on the art of acting by one of its greatest living exponents. Edith Evans attracted attention by her first appearance on any stage as Cressida in Troilus and Crcssida, and she is still attracting attention by her performance at the New Theatre of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet. Few actresses can be more familiar with Shakespeare. She toured with Ellen Terry , playing Mistress Ford in the basket scene from The Merry Wives of Windsor, and ten years ago played a round of leading parts at the Old Vie. She created the parts of the Serpent and the She-Ancient in Shaw's Back to Methusaleh and that of Orinthia in The Apple Cart. Her performances of Millamant in The Way of the World and of Florence Nightingale in The Lady with a Lamp were praised by all the critics. Many listeners in Sixth Forms will remember her broadcast of Cleopatra to Godfrey Tearle 's Antony two years ago.

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.
