: 'Stars in their Courses'

Mr. JAMES Agate :
* Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson and Dame Sybil ThorndLke '
Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson , in the years between his debut in 1874 and his farewell season at Drury Lane in 1913, won a unique place in the galaxy of the theatre in the age of the actor-manager. By his apprenticeship to Phelps, his association with Irving, his performances in Hamlet, Diplomacy, The Passing of the Third Floor Back, and in countless Shakespearean roles, he consistently represented and enriched a great tradition. He will be heard tonight as Hamlet.
Dame Sybil Thorndike is the star par excellence of the repertory movement. She graduated from the Horniman and Frohman Repertories to the Old Vic, where in the four years of the War she laid the foundations of her vast popularity, to be raised to its greatest height by her performances in Shaw's St. Joan in 1924. She is Lady Macbeth tonight, a part in which she scored a great success at the Prince's Theatre in 1926.

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.
