Reginald Berkeley 's play on the life of Florence Nightingale was first produced at the Arts Theatre on January 6, 1929, and went to the Garrick three weeks later. ' The Lady with a Lamp ' is to be played tonight by Diana Wyn yard, whom almost everyone will have seen in the film of Cavalcade.
She made her first appearance on the stage at the Globe Theatre in 1925, then toured the provinces in a repertory of over twenty parts. She did sterling work with the Liverpool Repertory Company, and has appeared in London in a number of West End plays, not least among them being Wild Decembers at the Apollo in 1933, in which she appeared as Charlotte Bronte, and which she subsequently ran under her own management. Listeners will remember her broadcast last year as Hermione in The Winter's Tale.
In a cast of so many distinguished actors and actresses, and well-known broadcasters, many listeners will pause at the name of Stella Patrick-Campbell , the charming and gifted daughter of Mrs. Patrick Campbell , one of the greatest actresses of modern times.

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.
