A 'Telecrime' by Mileson Horton.
With J. B. Rowe, Eric Maturin, Franklyn Bellamy, Bryan Powley, Frank Foster, Edmund Phelps.
Viewers will be given sufficient evidence to enable them to solve the problem which confronts Inspector Holt.
Police Constable Barnes:
The cast includes Margaretta Scott, Josephine Wilson, Molly Lumley, Aubrey Dexter, Olaf Olsen, Dion Boucicault, Fay Compton, Cyril Maude, Lady Tree, Nelson Keys, Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson, Lillah McCarthy, Sir Gerald du Maurier, Hilda Trevelyan, Sybil Thorndike, Sir Charles Hawtrey, Marie Lohr, Madge Titheradge, Leon Quartermaine, Irene Vanbrugh - this was the brilliant cast that played in the first production of Shall We Join the Ladies?, which was presented at the opening of the theatre of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
Technically, Shall We Join the Ladies? is extremely difficult to produce for television, the action being confined to diners seated round a circular table. It will be interesting to see how producer George More O'Ferrall copes with the problem of showing the diners' faces and not their backs.
(This programme will be repeated on Tuesday, April 25)
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.
