: Performance: The Maitlands

In keeping with its reputation as a showcase for "lost masterpieces" (the last two seasons have revived Rodney Ackland's Absolute Hell and Terence Rattigan 's After the Dance) as well as established classics, Performance presents the first production for 60 years of the witty and tragic family drama by Ronald Mackenzie.
Mackenzie, who wrote only three plays before his death in a car accident at the age of 29, was hailed as the most exciting young playwright of his generation. But his work, which has a disturbing bleakness, later became unfashionable.
It is early summer in the secluded seaside village of Betworthy. But there is a strained atmosphere in the once-prosperous Maitland household, because the family has fallen on hard times.

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.
