: Roar Like a Dove

An excerpt from the new comedy by Lesley Storm.

(see foot of page and page 4)

Televised direct from the Phoenix Theatre, London, by arrangement with Murray Macdonald and John Stevens Ltd.

For Lord and Lady Dungavel, nine years of married life spent in the comparative fastness of their castle in the Western Highlands, have produced, among other things, six children, all girls, which for the gay and beautiful Lady Emma seem just about enough. But the handsome Lord Dungavel, intent on producing an heir to his considerable estates, is still not prepared to fall in with his wife's wishes to call it a day and derive some social pleasure from the title, the money, and the tiara, which her marriage has brought her. At this gentle crisis in their erstwhile happy life together, Lady Emma puts through a long distance call to her parents in America, inviting them to come over to help...

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.
