: Two Plays

'The Pyramid'
A Play for Broadcasting by NORMAN EDWARDS
Characters in order of speaking :
The Action takes place inside one of the Pyramids
Produced by ROBIN WHITWORTH
'A Visitor from Down Under'
A Play from the Short Story by L. P. HARTLEY in ' The Killing Bottle'
Characters :
The Action takes place in London on Christmas
Eve
Adapted for broadcasting and produced by C. DENIS FREEMAN and M. H. ALLEN
The Pyramid is a new radio play by Norman Edwards , part-author of Waterloo, broadcast in June of last year. Its unusual and picturesque setting is the central chamber of a pyramid near Cairo. A party of sightseers are trapped by a falling wall; their only light is broken. The effect of this unpleasant adventure on the individuals is the theme of the play, which makes gripping entertainment well adapted for broadcasting. A Visitor from Down Under is a thriller of another kind; it was broadcast with great effect in a 'recent Miscellany.

Mr. J. B. PRIESTLEY
One of the chief charms of broadcasting lies in its power to catch the passing event, amusing, interesting or important, before it has had time to stale. Mr. Harold Nicolson 's ' People and Things ' and Mr. Gerald Barry 's ' Here and Now ' were individual types of radio causerie that won considerable popularity. Mr. J. B. Priestley starts out tonight on a similar weekly venture.

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.
