Babylonian Nights (an Ancient Story) Zamecnik
A New Lancashire Comedy by J. C. SPENCE
To find the correct solution in a newspaper compot tion and to share the prize money with many other successful competitors does not at first sight present a very novel situation. In this play, however, the consequences aro distinctly original.
' THIRTY-ONE '
A New Play by H. W. TWYMAN
This is a one-act play written speciallyfor broadcasting and described by the author as ' a coincidental fragment.' Indeed, he goes further, and admits that the long arm of coincidence may be almost dislocated by the strain which it has to bear.

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.
