: Full House

in Glasgow
Introduced by Joe Melia from an old abandoned church, converted for the occasion into a theatre studio. Among the main events:

Extracts from 'Jock'
This is a one-man pageant of Scottish history performed by Glasgow-born Russell Hunter ('Lonely' in the Callan TV series). In anecdote and lecture, 'Jock' dramatises some of the events that have bedevilled the relations between our two nations - and among the Scots themselves.

To discuss how representative Jock is of present-day Scottish attitudes, the author, W. Gordon Smith, will be invited to answer questions from the audience.

Glasgow's own JSD Band playing jigs and reels in the folk/rock idiom
Jim Divers (bass and vocals) Des Coffield (guitar and vocals) Sean O'Rourke (banjo and vocals) Lindsay Scott (violin) Colin Finn (drums)

The Man Who Knew About Electricity
A play written for Full House by Alasdair Gray

With Leslie Mackie, Barry Keegan, Jon Yule, James Gibson
'You see, we're not working class. We're... how could I put it... we're casualty class. And now this whole area - the part not knocked down I mean - is populated by casualties: unemployed people, and old-age pensioners, and moral casualties like me, and sentimental casualties like her.'

Artifactory is a group of young Glasgow artists who have designed the environment in which tonight's programme is taking place. They will show how the church (Elgin Congregational Church, Bath Street) has been transformed after lying empty and unused for almost a decade.
There are many buildings in Glasgow, like the church, at present lying vacant, under-used or in need of renovation. There are a number of groups in Glasgow with positive ideas about how they would like to use them.
The programme includes a short film about these people and places; and representatives of Local Authority discuss, with the audience, problems involved in reclaiming decrepit buildings.

Song for Glasgow Competition
Out of the hundreds of entries received, three will be selected for performance before the Glasgow audience who will be the judges. Although references to kilts, heather, gloaming or haggis have not actually been banned from the contest, it is unlikely that the winning songs will feature such subjects.

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.
