: The Rungs of the Ladder: VIII

Mr. C.B. Cochran
Mr. Cochran certainly needs no introduction; his entire career has been spent in introducing most of the famous artists, actors, dancers and show people of the world to the British theatre-going public.
Listeners can be certain of hearing from the greatest showman of our time a tale bright with racy, picturesque details of his vivid career. C.B. Cochran, from his school days at Brighton and his early struggles on and off the stage in America, has led a life packed with incident behind the scenes of the key centres of London's entertainment world during the last twenty-five years. His narrative should prove one of the most entertaining in this series of real life stories, for ho has spent a large part of his life climbing not one, but several ladders.

: CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE'S 'Doctor Faustus'

A Tragical History of the Renaissance
Arranged in Ten Scenes for Broadcasting by BARBARA BURNHAM
With Incidental Music by ROBERT
CHIGNELL
Produced by PETER CRESWELL
AFTER Shakespeare, Marlowe. of Broadcasting reverses the order of history and follows the presentation of Hamlet with Doctor Faustus, the masterpiece of Christopher Marlowe , Shakespeare's great predecessor, the inspired pioneer of blank verso and poetic tragedy in our language.
Doctor Faustus, published first in 1588, drew from Goethe, who treated the same theme in Faust, the praise ' How greatly is it all planned.' And grandeur, both of language and of conception, pervades Marlowe's treatment of the tragedy of Faustus, the scholar, who sells his soul to the Devil in return for forbidden knowledge of the black arts and visions of the past. The rich imagery of Marlowe's mighty line should make this broadcast a memorable entertainment. Little is known of Marlowe's life, but that. little is picturesque: son of a Canterbury shoemaker, friend of Raleigh and intimuto of the brilliant Mermaid company of poets, violent death in a tavern brawl at Deptford, and the rest is silence.

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.
