: THIRTY-MINUTE THEATRE

Cross Examine by JOHN FOSTER
Cast in order of appearance:
Script editor, Derek Hoddinott
Designer.
David Myerscough-Jones Producer, INNES LLOYD
Directed by JOHN MATTHEWS
The interview of Professor Michael Thompson has been designed by a TV current affairs programme as a piece of systematic destruction of a public figure. But it turns out differently. Thompson skilfully uses the programme as a platform for his controversial ideas, and, as a result, the TV company's switchboard is jammed with protests from irate viewers and reporters seeking a good knocking story. Wolfe, the programme's editor, is furious at the interviewer's failure. Viewers, he points out, only like success. It is like a Roman circus-the more blood seen to be spilt, the higher the ratings. That is why viewers should never see what goes on behind the screen, as Thirty-Minute Theatre shows you tonight.

: WHO IS....

Sean Kenny Designer
A series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Directed by WILLIAM BRAYNE
Produced by ALLAN KING ASSOCIATES
Sean Kenny is perhaps most famous in this country as a designer of stage sets-for example, Blitz, Maggie May, The Four Musketeers, and the National Theatre's production of Uncle Vanya. Kenny may not resemble anyone's idea of a visionary. Nonetheless, as his words reveal, he is a man with a vision. He is really convinced that the kind of rooms we live in shape our work, that the way school books are printed affect learning and character, that ' useless ' shapes of steel or concrete in a street, park, or room can usefully animate people's lives.

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.
