A Drama in One Act by W. B. MAXWELL
Presented by R. E. JEFFREY
TT is a winter's evening. In the commonly-furnished living-room of a humble tavern in a poor street in a country town, Mrs. Judd, a respectable-looking woman of about sixty, sits at her table with a work-basket and a pile of stockings which she is mending.
The adjoining tap-room is full of the usual evening visitors. Mr. Billett, an old customer, appears in the doorway, smoking his pipe and carrying his pot of beer.
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.
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.
