: Sunday-Night Theatre presents: The Mulberry Bush

by Angus Wilson.
[Starring] Ralph Michael, Mary Hinton, George Benson
The action takes place in the Warden's house and garden of a University College.
The time is the present

The Padleys are a distinguished family whose name has long been associated with humane and liberal causes, and this play by the well-known novelist and short-story writer, Angus Wilson, shows the Padley character in three generations. There are the old Padleys-James, an eminent university scholar, and his wife, Rose; their daughter, Cora Fellowes; and the young Padleys-Cora's barrister son, Simon; and Ann Padley, the daughter of Cora's dead brother, Robert, who was a notable education reformer. It is with the young people that the play is especially concerned, for the Padleys have always been happier with theory than fact, and the difference between human beings as they should be and as they are is brought home by the impact of three very different people -a young English scholar, a German refugee, and a lady formerly associated with Ann's father.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
