' Macbeth from the Actor's Point of View'

: 'Three Soldiers'

A Play for the Microphone by L. DU GARDE PEACH
Mr. L. du Garde Peach's new play is a dramatic statement, in terms of three soldiers, of the stages by which the modern industrial system has reached its present state of dislocation. His first soldier returns from the Napoleonic Wars in 1816, and is involved in the Lancashire Luddite Riots ; his second comes back from the Crimea in 1856 to Glasgow to find industry booming and jobs to be had for the asking; the third, a boot factory-hand, is one of the three million unemployed of today whose existence challenges scientists, economists, and politicians to cure the evils of industrialism by the proper application of the technique of production and distribution. This is essentially a play of ideas, with little action, but it grips by the reality of its theme and its relevance to present-day conditions, and the naturalness of its dialogue.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
