The Life and Times of Sir Noel Coward
A series in 13 parts
The theatre must be treated with respect. It is a house of strange enchantment, a temple of dreams. What it most emphatically is not, and never will be, is a scruffy ill-lit drill hall serving as a soapbox for political propaganda.
In the tenth programme. Sir Noel's career as an actor, play-wright. composer and director is traced through the critically uncertain years immediately following the war and through shows like Sigh No More, Pacific 1860 and Ace of Clubs.

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.
