The reputation of the Spanish dramatist, Sierra, is now European.
The setting of his plays is, naturally, Spanish, but their homeliness and sincerity need only translation to appeal to an international audience.
Wife to a Famous Man, which was first performed in Madrid in 1914, contains a moral which has universal application. In the words of the author, 'when a woman truly loves a man - whether he is a hero, or whether he is a scoundrel - she's bound to suffer for it.'
In particular, the play is dedicated to 'Woman - that admirable thing, unspoiled, sound as a ripe nut, sweet, but not too sweet - "Manola" - the working woman of Madrid.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
