Harry Welchman , celebrated for his good looks and voice and the ease of his acting, added to his considerable fame as a leading man in musical shows by creating the part of Colonel Belovar in that stirring play, The Lady of the Rose, when it was produced at Daly's in 1922. Thanks largely to the artistry of his performance and that of Phyllis Dare as Mariana (a part now to be taken by Sylvia Marriott ) The Lady of the Rose ran for 514 performances.
Adapted by the authors, Allan Mackinnon and Roger Macdougall , from the film of the same name

This Man is News itself makes a good news story, for the authors of this film, Allan Mackinnon and Roger Macdougall , were young students of Glasgow University who arrived in London in search of a career, wrote the scenario, and achieved success in this first film. But it was broadcasting that gave them their first chance of script-writing, and it was natural that. this popular film should be adapted by them for radio presentation, the broadcast raking place in February of last year. Both film and wireless fans will be glad to renew acquaintance with this fast-moving Fleet-Street story of murder in Soho.
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.
