' SARDINES FOR TEA '
A Comedy by GLADYS JOINER
Produced by STUART VINDEN
Martha . Spinner is a patient, faded little spinster who keeps a faded little huckster shop. The cheap little bell above the shop door tinkles, announcing the entrance of a short, stout, managing, but kindly body, Mrs. Catchem. She is welcomed by the fussy little spinster.
Box 123 X:
A Play by W. P. Lipscombe
The scene is the flat of a bachelor with taste and leisure. Bill is present, and his butler, who is very agitated, is endeavouring to point out the seriousness of the situation.
Burton (a Butler):
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
