Tonight's Play by Gordon Daviot
The story of tonight's play - which was first produced in the West End of London in 1934 - was suggested to the author by the lives of two gifted but very dissimilar people who made their home together in London before the first World War - Henri Gaudier, the brilliant young French sculptor, and Sophie Brzeska, a Polish woman of thirty-eight.
Although they first met in Paris, they soon moved to London, and lived together in Chelsea as brother and sister. By 1914 Henri - who had now adopted the name Gaudier-Brzeska - was becoming known as an artist of considerable originality and power. But the war cruelly interrupted his career...
Although recognisably the story of Henri and Sophie the author has given an imaginative rather than a factual account of their lives, and the names of the principal characters are Rene Latour and Magda Kletzka.

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.
