Time: The Present
There is something strange going on at the little French hotel. There is a mixture of gaiety and tension which even Albert the Gendarme senses. A great deal of champagne is being consumed, but the young Czech woman is anxious, even hysterically so, and the American business-man is tight-lipped. The Hungarian adventurer may joke and argue, and the hotel-keeper may be discreet, but it is clear that someone is awaited, one guest has still to arrive.
It is a measure of Mr. Shapiro's skill that only when that initial suspense has been broken, does his genuine conflict begin. The bridge of his title is at once symbolic and real: symbolic of the link with his native country which the awaited guest must break if he is to live; and real because there is a bridge outside this hotel and on it stands, broodingly, the man who will stop at little to prevent that break.

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.
