: The Writer in the Witness-Box: 7: The novel and the short story

A discussion of fiction by Sir Hugh Walpole and Desmond Hawkins
In spite of the war (or is it because of it?) novels and short stories are more popular than ever. This evening's discussion should appeal to all lovers of fiction, for few living novelists have a larger following than has Sir Hugh Walpole. Who is there who has not spent happy hours with his 'Mr. Perrin and Mr. Traill', 'The Prelude to Adventure', 'The Dark Forest', and 'The Cathedral'? In 'Who's Who' Sir Hugh confesses that one of his recreations is 'talking'. When he is talking on books he is certain to be at his best.

: Pamela Stanley in Beatrice Gilbert and Priscilla Schryver's new radio play 'PRIVATE VIEW'

A study of the inevitable
Produced by Lance Sieveking Cast
This new radio play, by two authors whose names are known to listeners interested in radio drama, has an interesting theme: the clash between a woman's own ambition and her love for her husband, and the contrast between her success as wife to a famous artist, and her failure as a painter far more original than her husband could ever hope to be.

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.
