'A MATTER OF POLICY'
A New Original Comedy by GORDON PHILLIPS
PICTURE the dining-room of a suburban home at 8.30 a.m. The husband is engaged in a careful scrutiny of the morning milk. In the centre of the breakfast table lie several unopened letters, and it is at the precise moment when the wife notices them that our play commences.
A Play by HELEN C. PRESBURY
IMAGINE the rather dingy hall of a Blooms-bury Lodging House on December 20, 1925. On the combined hat-rack and umbrella-stand rests a telephone. A door opening off, the hall into a bed-sitting-room discloses. a young man busily searching for something in the bureau.
The landlady stands watching him, an expression i of mingled triumph and outraged virtue on her face.
Mr Harold Lane:
The ' Down and Out':
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.
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.
