: The Plain Woman

A play in one act by Anthony Gilbert
Characters in order of speaking: Sebastian, Mrs. John Stopford, A Police Sergeant, A Clerk, Hugo Ferris
Scene: A mews flat in London
Here is another Anthony Gilbert play with Sebastian, the crook to intrigue you all. As you know well enough already, he is that type of crook who is endearing to authors and audience alike - a man who never turns a deaf ear to an appeal to chivalry.
This afternoon you will hear some of the complications into which this weakness of Sebastian's leads him, but how, like the clever fellow he is, he devises a means to outwit the party who would outwit him.

Jack Buchanan first appeared on the regular stage at the Apollo Theatre, London, in 1912 ; since when a mere list of the parts that he
- has played would fill a long column of small print. He began his film career in The Happy Ending, and he has starred in such outstanding talkies as Good-Night Vienna, Yes, Mr. Broun, and The Sky's the Limit.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
