A new play for broadcasting by PETER CRESWELL and M. H. ALLEN
Founded on ' SAPPER'S' short story, 'RAYMOND BLAIR —DRUNKARD '
Incidental Music composed and arranged by LESLIE WOODGATE
The Play produced by PETER CRESWELL
Characters :
Leyton, a globe trotter LESLIE PERRINS
MacAndrew, a planter J. HUBERT LESLIE
Raymond Blair , a derelict RONALD SIMPSON
Jim Maitland , a rolling stone FELIX AYLMER
Mrs. Blair, a trusting wife LILA MARAVAN
Dutch Joe , a saloon keeper DOUGLAS Ross
Planters, Coolies, Traders, etc., etc.
The action takes place on the Island of Tampico in the South Seas, first on the verandah of the little Tampico Club, next in Dutch Joe's Saloon, or Gin Hell, and lastly in Nagasaki.
' You may not know, or possibly may never have heard of Tampico, in which case, you are to a certain extent to be pitied. If ever there was a flawless jewel set in a sapphire sea, Tampico is that jewel, and since flawless jewels are few and far between, the loss is yours.
' But on balance you win. For if ever there was a place where soul and body rotted more rapidly and more completely, I have yet to find it. That beautiful island, a queen even amongst the glories of the South Seas, contained more vice to the mile than did ever the slums of a great city.'

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.
