A special performance from the Westminster Theatre, London, by arrangement with E. P. Clift and Jack Minster

[Photo caption] Valerie Taylor as 'Mamselle', Hugh Williams as Thomas Swinley

In the living room of the Swinleys' charming country house in Sussex hangs a dominating portrait - a portrait of the beautiful Mrs Swinley, who, when the play opens, is upstairs, about to become a mother for the fourth time. Downstairs, her husband Thomas prepares once more for the exacting role of an expectant father. This time, however, he has a number of additional problems to face and overcome in the shape of the implacable professional nurse with an exaggerated sense of responsibility, the lonely and frustrated French governess who teaches one of the sons, the family Nannie who has been with the Swinleys for years, and Rosina, the Italian cook, whose knowledge of English is limited to a few American catchphrases.

: Eye on Research: 8: The Dividing Line

Robert Reid reports.
One of the most delicate jobs a scientist can tackle is the making of diffraction gratings-a number of extremely fine lines ruled on pieces of glass-up to 30,000 of them to an inch. These can be used for very accurate measurement. Dr. Sayce, of the National Physical Laboratory, tells the story of how an inexpensive method has been developed to produce these gratings and how their use may ultimately lead to a revolution in engineering and industry.

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

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.
