: The Blue Penguin

by Harold Simpson and Geoffrey Tempest Presented by R. E. JEFFREY
Played by the LONDON RADIO REPERTORY PLAYERS
THIS is the story of a weird prophecy unfolded in a country inn during an evening of wild storm outside and even wilder mental storms within. As the action of the play develops, the listener is almost convinced on two or three occasions that he is about to hear the end of this prophecy. Tragic fulfilment does, in fact, constitute the climax, but its occurrence is unsuspected. Characters :
ON a stormy winter's evening in the kitchen of a little country inn, ' The Blue Penguin,' Jacob, the old potman, is seated on a settle muttering to himself and gazing into a fire which is burning on a large open fireplace. Through a long, low lattice window at the back of the room, the corner of the porch can be seen.

Jasper Fletcher (Her Husband, Owner of the Inn and Farm) - HENRY OSCAR

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.
