: ' NEW JUDGMENT

James Bridie on J. M. Barrie. The leading Scottish dramatist of today gives his views on a great Scottish dramatist of yesterday, with scenes from Barrie's plays. Produced by Denis Johnston
The choice of James Bridie as one to assess the qualities of that other great Scottish dramatist, James Barrie , is a happy one. Not that Bridie and Barrie could be said to have much in common beyond brilliant imagination-and even that quality is shared by both only in name. Barrie's dreamlike inventiveness was essentially and eternally romantic, whereas Bridie's felicity of mind is generally realistic. sometimes satirical, with here and there an approach to the level of farce. Bridie is accepted as the greatest living Scottish playwright of the day, and, being a Scotsman, can be relied upon to pass a judgment full of understanding upon the late Sir James.

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.
