'The Apostle Play'


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.
Max Mell is an authority on philosophical subjects, and is the author of several books published in his own country, Germany. His translator in this particular instance, Maud Valerie White, is well known for her songs, many of which are as popular now as they were at the end of the last century. She was a holder of the much-coveted Mendelssohn's Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. Her musical settings of poetry by Herrick and Shelley, and of German and French poets such as Schiller, Victor Hugo , and Heine, show her beautiful sense of feeling for verse both in English and foreign tongues.
Her translation of Max Mell 's play is in blank verse. She has artistically preserved the simplicity of the original script without leaving the clumsy phraseology of a literal interpretation.
The plot is simple, and the sincerity of the dialogue ismanifest from the first line to the last. The period and the country where the cottage is situated are not disclosed. Nor does it matter. Max Mell's play does not depend for its effect upon such circumstances as place and time.

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.
