Elias and the Mushrooms
A Play in One Act by Shirland Quin.
The action takes place in the kitchen of the Powys's farm, up in the Welsh hills. Elias Powys, a sandy-haired, vehement little man in the fifties, is busily stirring a pot that hangs over the fire in the spacious kitchen of his farm. His mother, Mary Powys, whose age is so great that many have left off trying to remember what it is, sits in a chair beside him. She is knitting a long and amazingly thick stocking. Elias speaks.

Joe Hayman, the Jewish Entertainer (assisted by Mildred Franklin) in Comedy Sketches
Hayman and Franklin are perhaps the cleverest Hebrew pair now appearing on the music-hall stage. Without casting ridicule on the Jewish faith or in any way straining after effect, they produce an act worthy of the reputation that Joe Hayman has made for himself with his famous 'Cohen' records. They have quite recently broadcast from London, but this week's tour-in the course of which they visited Glasgow yesterday and will be heard from Manchester to-morrow, Birmingham on Thursday, Belfast on Friday, and Aberdeen on Saturday-will be their first introduction to many listeners, although they are established favourites with the broadcast public of the United States.
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.
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.
