Produced by MICHAEL HOGAN
IT was with She Stoops to Conquer that Gold-smith made his name as a playwright—a name that repeated London revivals and innumerable amateur productions have ever since kept green. Produced in 1773 at Covent Garden, where his first work, The Good-Natur'd Man, had failed five years before, it triumphed over the fashion of the day, which was all for sentimental comedy, and the first night was a riot. Before the century was out it had been put on seven times more at the Haymarket, Covent Garden, and Drury Lane, and its popularity shows no signs of waning to this day. This afternoon's production, necessarily . compressed from the original stage version, is the fifth in the series of great plays which have this Autumn been specially broadcast to the schools.

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.
