: S.B. from London (9.15 Local Announcements)

(The fourth of the ' Browns of Owdham ' Series)
Characters (in order of speaking):
We are introduced to the Browns' kitchen at late tea-time on a Saturday night.
Among one or two other ornamental mottoes on the wall is one which reads, ' What is Home without a Mother ? ' Bill Brown , in solitary state and with melancholy mien', is just finishing tea. He turns and gazes at the mctto with obvious indignation.
THIS is the latest ' Sarah Brown ' play by Mr. Lewis, a playwright whose work is becoming well known to radio audiences. Manchester Station has already produced four of his plays, Liverpool and Daventry, Glasgow, Cardiff and Sheffield have each done one, and next week Sheffield will produce This Film Business under the author's direction, with himself in the cast.

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.
