: TWO PLAYS BY EDWIN LEWIS

EDWIN LEWIS is a Yorkshireman by birth.
At an early age he sold papers in a big industrial town, and for three years he worked, outside school hours, as a lather-boy. At the age of fourteen he worked in a coal mine, and he has since slung bricks, melted steel, written poetry, served as a soldier during the war and generally had an exceedingly varied career. He believes that there is a great future in the new medium of broadcast drama and is devoting much attention to the technique required for this special form of play.
' THE REED IN THE WOOD'
A new Romany Romance specially written for
Broadcasting, by EDWIN LEWIS
Characters (in order of speaking):
Cathleen Cametti , Seth Carnetti , Naomi Laplaux , Simon Robins
Mad Martin
UNDER the shelter of the trees, in a woodland glade, on a late midsummer's night, two tents are pitched. In the foreground a log fire burns fitfully in the light breeze.
The still form of Cathleen Carnetti , who is sitting before the fire, completes a picture of romantic beauty. Her face is of the colour of ripe maple, with a hardness round the mouth that suggests its own story of wandering, fighting and struggling. She draws a gleaming knife from her waistband, and staring fixedly before her, speaks.
The Cast includes :
HYLDA METCALF, ELLA FORSYTH , D. E. ORMEROD , FRANK NICOLLS and E. H.
BRIDGSTOCK
Musical Interlude
' MANAGING MARGARET '
A Comedy by EDWIN LEWIS
Characters (in order of speaking) :
Sarah Brown (a North Country Miner's Wife) Margaret Spikesley (Her Unmarried Sister) Bill Brown (Her Husband) Herbert Brown (Her Son)
SARAH is intent on her sewing. The patch she is weaving into Herbert's second pit trousers claims her undivided attention, so that to her, Margaret's monotonous, affected voice seems a long way off.
Margaret, bobbed and bedecked in a georgette afternoon frock, is reading out loud from the latest fashionable novel.
The Cast includes :
MARY EASTWOOD , LUCIA ROGERS ,
CHARLES NESBITT , and E. H. BRIDGSTOCK

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

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.
