: 'Southern Seas'

(From Birmingham) 'SEA SILENCE'
A Play of Terror on the High Seas, by EDWIN LEWIS
Bob Adams , Bo'sun of H.M.S. Musk JOHN Moss On the deck of the Sea Lark at night in the tropics—a night that is starless and black as pitch. Two men, clad in cotton shirts and loose trousers, are seated on boxes. All is quiet with that unearthly silence one finds when seas are like glass, and the air is heavy with impending tragedy. 'NATURAL CAUSES' An Island Comedy, by IAN HAY , adapted for the microphone by C. H. BREWER
Phyllis Etherington and Leslie Gale have met as fellow guests of Lord Denholm while on a pleasure cruise in the Pacific. She has taken an intense dislike to him, which she decides is due to his failure to treat her with that respect-others might say servility-to which she has been accustomed. Although he has proposed to her, her refusal has met with an exasperating detachment of mind . which she resents. On the night in question matters come to a head between them.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
