: Saturday-Night Theatre: The Ulster Group Theatre in: Boyd's Shop

An Ulster comedy by St. John Ervine
Adapted for broadcasting and produced by James Mageean
Boyd's shop in the Ulster village of Donaghreagh is more than a mere grocery store: it is a centre of local gossip, a forum of village politics. Of course, people do buy things occasionally, but Mr. Boyd doesn't worry them unduly to do so. He knows that he is a dealer in the necessities of life and that his people cannot do without him. He is old-fashioned perhaps, and no doubt a modern go-ahead grocer would call his shop a muddle. But he gives good value and, as the author says, It is not necessary for him to flaunt his waxes in a customer's face: they speak for themselves.' But there is consternation in the village when John Haslett, a young grocer bristling with modem ideas and infallible recipes for ' getting on,' sets up in opposition. It is evident that he has his eye on Boyd's customers. It soon becomes evident also that he has his other eye on Boyd's daughter' Agnes, who is about to make a good match with the Rev. Ernest Dunwoody. Strangely enough, the only person who doesn't seem concerned is Boyd himself. Stephen Williams

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.
