: A DEBATE

' WHY ACT SHAKESPEARE ? '
REBECCA WEST versus BEN GREET
William Shakespeare in the Chair
THE library and the theatre have long contended for the honour of possessing
Shakespeare at his best. The literary critic shudders at the cutting and adapting that preface the presentation of one of Shakespeare's plays on the modern stage. Why act Shakespeare, he says, if he is to be at the mercy of adapters and producers and scene-designers and stars? Read him, and enjoy the plays as he wrote them. The man of the theatre contends that Shakespeare, another man of the theatre, wrote for the stage, and on the stage alone can he be enjoyed. These are the points of view that one may expect Miss Rebecca West , the briHiant writer and literary critic, and Mr. Den Greet, the veteran Shakespeare producer, to take tonight.

: 'OH, KAY!'

An Excerpt from the New Musical Comedy
Relayed from His MAJESTY'S THEATRE
What has already happened :
KAY (Gertrude Lawrence ) is the sister of the Duke of Datchet (Claud Hulbert ), and, like her brother, a bootlegger. The Duke is an impecunious nobleman who uses his yacht for rum-running, and has had the liquor stored in the cellar of a Long Island house. The owner . of tho house is Jimmie Winter (Harold French),
-a supposed bachelor, but really a much-married man. After his first wife-whom he married for a bet-has consented to the annulment of the union en receipt of adequate compensation, Jimmie becomes half married to Constance Appleton , daughter of an American Judge, and in Kay he finds a third vis à-vis. On swimming ashore to escape a bogus revenue officer, Kav discovers in Jimmie the man whom she had saved from drowning some time before Kav enhsts the help of an old rum-running friend
Shorty McGee (played by John Kirby ), and the two of them, posing as husband and wife turn the tables on the bogus revenue officer by pretending to be the maid and butler at a lunch party given by Jimmie. At this point the microphone comes into action.

(Continued)
SWENDSEN, though less closely 'national' than his compatriot Grieg, wrote a good deal of music embodying his impressions of his native Norway, besides many other works in symphonic style. Several of his works suggest the spirit of festivity, among them the well-known Carnivalin Paris and Norwegian Artists' Carnival, and this Festal Polonaise.








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.
