Introduced by David Seth-Smith and their Keepers
In this new series it is hoped, when weather permits, to televise Zoo specimens in the open air as well as in the studio. David Seth-Smith will occasionally add to the interest of the broadcasts by bringing various authorities to talk before the camera.
Beatrix Lehmann as the Lady Anne, Ernest Milton as Richard, Duke of Gloucester in scenes from "Richard III".
Today for the first time viewers will see Ernest Milton, who is one of the best Shakespearean actors on the London stage. Radio listeners will remember his fine interpretation of Shylock in the radio version of "The Merchant of Venice" broadcast on January 31. It was his first introduction to Shakespeare that made him decide to become an actor. He was taken as a small boy to see "As You Like It" performed in the Greek theatre of the University of California, and from that moment his mind was made up.
Beatrix Lehmann, as well as being a leading actress, has a big reputation as a novelist.

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.
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.
