A Little Play in Verse by Louis N. PARKER
Characters :
The Marquis
The Marchioness
The Gaoler
DURING The Terror ' in the living-room in the Gaoler's quarters in the prison of the conciergerie. There is on]y one door, and that is at the back. In an angle is a window, heavily barred inside and out. Through this the upper storeys of houses can be seen. These are lighted up now and then with a wavering glare as of passing torches. The room is but sparsely furnished. There is a rickety table with a straw-bottomed chair beside it. There are two or three other similar chairs. In one corner is a small iron stove, with a chimney which meanders deviously, and finally goes out through one of the top panes of the window. It is night. The room is lighted by a hanging-lamp with a green shade, suspended from the ceiling. On the walls are caricatures of the king, revolutionary placards, and a pleasing picture of the guillotine.

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.
