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.

: 'THIS MAN IS NEWS'

Adapted by the authors, Allan Mackinnon and Roger Macdougall , from the film of the same name
(by permission of Paramount Pictures, Ltd.)
Characters :
Simon Drake (a reporter), Pat Drake (his wife), Macgregor (news editor), Clayton (a reporter), Marquis (a sub-editor), Inspector Holly , C.I.D., Sergeant Bright, Harelip, Doyle, Joe
(members of a criminal gang)
Scenes : The Daily Gazette office, Drake's flat, a pool saloon, Scotland Yard, Harelip's flat, Macgregor's flat, and a restaurant
Produced by W. Farquharson Small
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.

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.
