: Omnibus: East of Bedlam

The regular weekly programme about the creative world of art and artists.
Introduced by Henry Livings.

The story of an actor-manager in the rip-roaring days of Victorian and Edwardian melodrama.
Written and narrated by his grandson, John M. East.

"If anything can be deader than dead, it is often a form of popular entertainment. The spellbinders of yesteryear become victims of popular taste which can be as fickle as the weather. About fifty years ago the rip-roaring melodrama of the Victorian and Edwardian era died without much fuss or ceremony. In its time it was full-blooded, packed the theatres, and produced men and women, alive today, who remember the sounds and the smells with remarkable vividness and warmth.
Some of them worked for an actor-manager, John M. East, whose grandson has been fascinated and intrigued by the portrait of his forebear which dominates his study. He resolved to find out as much as he could and this year published a book, 'Neath the Mask. The knowledge he acquired in the process provided the basis for this programme, in which John M. East conjures up the life and times of his grandfather and talks to people who remember his blood-and-thunder melodrama." Stephen Hearst

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.
