: Celia Johnson reads from ' ELLEN TERRY'S MEMOIRS'

(1847-1906) edited by Edith Craig and Christopher St. John arranged for broadcasting in twelve episodes by Mollie Greenhaigh
Produced by Audrey Cameron
CHAPTER 4
In Chapter 3 Ellen Terry described how, in her family's summer holidays, her father would take the little theatre at Ryde in the Isle of Wight, where the Terrys would act throughout the summer before Kate and Ellen returned to Charles Kean's productions at the Princess's Theatre. In 1861 Ellen went to the Royalty Theatre, where she played for a year before joining a Stock Company at Bristol. She was now fourteen years old and beginning to appreciate beauty and ' to feel the splendour of things.'

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.
