: Theatre Parade: Whiteoaks

Excerpts from Nancy Price's production at the Playhouse Theatre.

This play, which was written by Mazo de la Roche, is taken from the second of the series of six books dealing with the history of a Canadian family. Two of the principal characters will be seen - the formidable grandmother, and Finch, the sensitive and artistic young man, parts played by Nancy Price and Patrick Boxill. Nancy Price has been a prominent theatrical figure for nearly forty years. She is a fine actress and one of the most enterprising West-End stage producers. It was she who was instrumental in founding the People's National Theatre in 1930.

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.
