: TWO SHORT COMEDIES ' WHITEMAIL '

A One-Act Comedy by ROBERT H. BLACKMORE
Characters :
THE scene is laid in Carrol's study, a somewhat dreary apartment in which the most important articles of furniture appear to be a large desk covered with papers and books and a small bamboo table, upon which stands a typewriter. The untidiness which pervades the room seems strangely at variance with the immaculate appearance of Andrew Carrol.

' THIS FILM BUSINESS '
A Farce in One Act by EDWIN LEWIS
Performed by THE STATION REPERTORY PLAYERS
-Characters :
Two Gun Job (a Filmy Friend) A. G. MITCHESON TMAGINE yourself in Mrs. Entwistle's kitchen about that time of night when the hero and heroine on the films are kissing in their final 'close-up,' and the audience is searching for mislaid gloves, hats and handkerchiefs.
Sarah and Hannah are discussing the destinies of the young folk. These two ladies have witnessed that electric phenomenon, the transfer of attention from fate-Victorian melodrama to the modern film super-melodrama, but Sarah remains unimpressed. She is very practical, and knows that the way. to make things happen is hot to hope so much as to pull the string. Just now, like the writer of film melodrama, she is arranging her scenario for the entertainment.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
