A Troupe of Mummers.
Act I. The Garden of Prunella's
Act If. Tho Same. (Night.)
Act III. The Same. (Three Years
Later-Sunset.) Mind Picture: Imagine an old-world garden, enclosed by high hedges cut square, slumbering beneath the midday sun of a summer's day. A statue of Love, with viol and bow, stands over the fountain. To one side you can see the house of Prunella's Aunts, a house with prim windows, the centre one projecting over a porch in which hangs a caged canary. An old gardener is at work, trimming the hedges and trailing up creepers. Behind the farther hedge the voice of the gardener's boy is heard scaring birds.
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.
