A Comedy by Lady Gregory.
[Starring] Kathleen Drago, Fred O'Donovan, Tony Quinn

The Workhouse Ward was one of the most famous of the plays that Lady Gregory wrote for the Irish National Theatre, of which she was one of the founders and inspirers. It has been revived many times at' the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and it was produced in London at the Little Theatre in April, 1935, with Fred O'Donovan as Mike Mclnerny, the part he will play today. Fred O'Donovan is one of the most famous Irish actors known to London audiences. Theatre-goers will remember his fine performance in the West-End as Lanigan in Denis Johnston's play, The Moon in the Yellow River.

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.
