A play by A. A. Milne.
The action of the play takes place in Noah's house.
The Bible tells us of the command to Noah 'Make thee an ark', but we are not told how Noah's family received the news that there would be a flood which would drown the whole world. Did they really believe in Noah's prophetic dream? How was the ark to be built? Who would called the animals together and make sure that only two of each were taken on board? How was Noah's wife to tackle the problem of providing a year's supply of food for all the animals and the family? This gentle comedy shows Noah and his wife with their three sons and daughters-in-law as people who, with all-too-human frailty, do their best to interpret and carry out the command. (Mary Maxted)

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.
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.
