: The Society of West End Theatre Awards

In association with Benson and Hedges
Introduced by Angela Rippon and Peter Barkworth from the Cafe Royal, London.
London's West End theatres have seen nearly 100 productions this year - revivals, revues, new plays, opera, ballet and musicals, all of which qualify for consideration by the judging panel of the Society of West End Theatre.
Consisting of theatre-owners and producers, the Society selects a committee of 12 judges - all people who either work in the theatre or are members of the theatre-going public - to decide on the winner.
With four nominations in each of the 21 categories, recipients really must represent the very best in the theatre today.
Special guest Russell Harty gives his personal appraisal of the plays seen in the West End during 1981. Among the individual nominations for awards are: Rowan Atkinson, Brian Blessed, Petula Clark, Michael Crawford, Trevor Eve, Edward Fox, Georgina Hale, Patricia Hodge, Donald Sinden, Wayne Sleep, Maggie Smith and John Wells; and for the musicals: BornuMt, Cats and One Mo' Time.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
