: The Bridge

A play by Lionel Shapiro.
The action takes place at the Auberge Bonnar in Northern France.
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.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
