: "THE RUM RUNNERS."

A Listening Piny written for
Broadcasting
Richardby Hughes.
Presented by R. E. JEFFREY.
Characters:
The Captain of a Rum-Runner
Schooner
Mr. Harris (The Schooner's Mate)
A Pirate (whose voice is heard through a megaphone)
Other Sailors.
All up and down the coast of the Eastern States of America from off New York to the end of Long Island there now stretches what is called Rum Row : it is a mixed collection of the vessels of every nation, from battered old wind-jammers to tramps and even yachts.
There is an ever-increasing numbers of pirates who await their chance either to capture liquor or the hard cash that has been paid for it. Something of the methods of these pirates you will see in the play. The action does not take place actually on Rum Row itself, Full farther north off the coast of Maine. The boat you will board to-night is a small fast-sailing schooner which has left the Row itself, and, in order: to cut the profits of the motor-launch middle-men, has gone up north to run its cargo ashore. The night is wild and squally with a high sea running. The desperate little vessel has successfully put in to shore, landed her cargo, and is now beating for the open sea.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
