The BBC presents Pamela Stanley and Paul von Hernried in scenes from Lewis Allen's production of 'Victoria Regina' by Laurence Housman with
The scenes arranged and produced for the microphone by Anthony MacDonald
A day before the opening of the first Birmingham production of Victoria Regina at the Prince of Wales Theatre, the London company, with Pamela Stanley and Paul von Hernried as Victoria and Albert, respectively, comes to the Birmingham studios to give some scenes from this famous play. Formed of nine out of the forty-two short plays which Housman wrote around Queen Victoria, this play was first produced privately at the Gate Theatre, London, and then in New York, where it has been running for over two years. Official permission for its public performance in this country was granted on the 100th anniversary of Queen Victoria's accession.

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.
