: Crashing into the Atmosphere

Capt. C. H. Brewer

This is another of the Cardiff Station's series of talks on the humour of the professions.
Although perhaps difficult to believe, aviation is full of humour, and it finds one outlet in its many amusing slang expressions, of which our title is an example. Translated into English, it means 'Flying'.


Speaker: Capt. C.H. Brewer

: Behind the Curtain

A Comedy in One Act by Phyllis Eadon.
Played by the Station Radio Players.

Scene: The stage of a theatre. The time is half an hour before the evening's performance.
As unfortunately sometimes happens, the Leading Lady finds the strain of competing with the charms of the younger women rather trying, and her jealousy is sufficiently apparent to call forth ungenerous comments at her expense.
When the atmosphere becomes overcharged with feeling of this sort, an ugly row sometimes ensues; and on the other side of the curtain one evening, only half an hour before the play is timed to commence, such a scene is taking place.
When, a few minutes later, the Leading Lady's pearls are supposed to be stolen, the owner does not hesitate to fasten suspicion on her rival.
A detective who is called in to search, after all the exits have been barred, is unable to trace its whereabouts.


Writer: Phyllis Eadon
The Leading Lady: Eileen Blunden
The Second Lady: Jones M. Jones
The Stage Manager: Ivor Maddox
The Call-Boy: Sidney Evans
The Detective: L. E. Williams
The Dresser: Bronwen Davies

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
