: Wilfred Pickles in 'THE REGENT'

Arnold Bennett 's novel adapted as a serial play
In six parts by Evelyn Russell
5— 'The Show Begins '
Produced by William Hughes
'The Regent' London's newest theatre has been completed by the efforts of Edward Henry Machin , Alderman of Bursley. The obvious feminine charms of Rose Euclid, the actress, and her cousin Elsie April persuade the provincial impresario to open with The Orient Pearl, a verse play of doubtful merit. Although he has to go through with the production, Edward Henry combats the attractions of Elsie April by bringing his wife and family to London. This quickly settles the romantic interlude and all is ready for the first night.

A summary of events of the past week

: Radio Theatre presents: The Rampart

by Arnold Diamond

The beach of an English seaside resort on a hot summer's day; crowded with a rich assortment of people in a variety of moods... residents and holidaymakers joined in an uneasy alliance...
Suddenly a young clerk, watching the incoming tide, says "Why shouldn't we build a wall?" and without more ado the people of the beach are united in carrying out his wish; personal antipathy is forgotten; where there's a will there will soon be a-wall... a wall, as it turns out, five feet high and two miles long.

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.
