: The Wednesday Play

Birthday by MICHAEL FRAYN
Rosemary Leach as Jess Angela Pleasence as Liz Clive Swift as Neil Georgina Ward as Willa Liz is twenty-seven today. It is Sunday in her London bachelor-girl's flat, and to celebrate or commiserate with her on this birthday her elder sister, Jess, is invited to lunch. Jess, a proud parent, is far gone with a fourth pregnancy. The baby is due in a fortnight, or so she thinks. But Liz and her bachelor guests are due for a rude shock.
When this play was first shown the News of the World called it a ' Glorious comedy '; Virginia Ironside said in the Daily Mail: ' Lines so true to life that they made me wince with pleasure ' Bernie ROBERT HAMILTON

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.
