: Mr... STANLEY CASSON: Digging up Old Stamboul '

No city in Europe, except possibly Rome, has more secrets to yield to the archaeologist than Constantinople, which was the capital of half the world when London consisted of no more than a village, a fort and a ford. Mr. Casson, who is Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Oxford, has been the director of a recent expedition to excavate in Old Stamboul, and he has some interesting stories about their finds.


A Play in Three Acts by ST. John ERVINE
Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
S.B. from Manchester
John Thurlow , the head of Thurlow's
Shipbuilding Yard, has at last completed the task of building a super-ship, which in his estimation is unsinkable. His one sorrow is that his son Jack has grown up a priggish, humourless lad, whose outlook on life is characterized by a persistent revolt against convention. He opposes his father's wish that he should take his place at Thurlows' and carry on the work of three generations. The play describes the conflict between the ambitious
I father and the easy-going Bon-a conflict tamiliar enough in the modern novel and play, but here dealt with in an original and intensely poignant manner.

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.
