(By arrangement uith Emile Littler ) in Two One-Act Plays
A Comedy in One Act by H. C. G. STEVENS
Scene : The Private' Sitting-room in a West-end Theatre, of Sir Herbert, most distinguished of Actors, at the end of a Matinee
A Comedy in One Act by NEIL GRANT
Scene: A Room in a Bungalow on Dartmoor, late at night
Both plays produced by HERBERT M. PRENTICE
Relayed from
The Repertory Theatre, Birmingham
THE FIRST of these two plays, from the studio at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, is by a very well-known London journalist: H. C. G. Stevens- whom Fleet Street has named ' Inky ' Stevens. It is a skit on the old type of actor - manager ; the kind who was the subject of the novel ' Enter Sir John '. The second play is by Neil Grant , the author of Petticoat Influence, which had a successful run at the St. Martin's. In On Dartmoor a convict--and later two warders-visit a bungalow not far from the famous prison. The comedy lies in the reaction of the lady of the house to the convict and his plight.

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.
