: 2nd House

' Frank's for the Memory '
This year, a disagreement with the Arts Council has brought to an end Frank Hauser 's association with the Oxford Playhouse, and the winding up of the company he founded 17 years ago to put on new plays in Oxford - the Meadow Players.
As a grand finale, many of the celebrated artists who have appeared with the company during its life gathered in Oxford to put on a special show as a surprise parting gift for Frank Hauser.
In 2nd House, MELVYN BRAGG introduces highlights from the show and talks to Frank Hauser about his achievements as Director of the Meadow Players, which has mounted 80 premieres in Oxford, 20 of which have subsequently transferred to the West
End. The programme will include scenes from:
The Wolf by FERENC MOLNAR with Edward Woodward
Leo McKern and Judi Dench Antony and Cleopatra by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE with Barbara Jefford
Electra by JEAN GIRAUDOUX with Frank Windsor
Also, Barbara Young , Joss Ack -land and John Moffatt reading extracts from An Actor's Life for Me, an anthology of writings about the theatre by Tyrone Guthrie , Max Beerbohm. Dorothy Perrott and Charles Dickens.
' Does no other profession occur to you, which a young man of your figure and address could take up easily, and see the world to advantage in? ' asked the manager. ' No,' said Nicholas Nickleby , shaking his head.
' Why, then, I'll tell you one,' said Mr Crummies , throwing his pipe into the fire and raising his voice.
' The stage! '
' The stage! ' cried Nicholas, in a voice almost as loud.
PLUS a special musical composition for the occasion: ' The Arts Council Songs' by Elisabeth Lutyens , sung by RICHARD EASTON , KEN WALLER , JOHN J. MOORE and CAROL HALL.

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.
