Mr. JAMES AGATE : Sir Frank Benson '
Sir Frank Benson , whose career
Mr. James Agate sketches tonight, has rendered unique service to the English theatre. Apart from his distinguished career as an actor, notable for many fine Shakespearean performances, the companies with which he toured the provinces and the Dominions for many years were recognised as first-rate nurseries of actin which many prominent actors gained their early experience. He has made some magnificent records for this broadcast : listeners will hear his rendering of three famous speeches from Shakespearean plays : * No matter where, of comfort no man speak ...' (Richard 11, III.2); ' Friends, Romans, countrymen ...' (Julius Cœsar, III, 2); ' Farewell, a long farewell to all my greatness ...' (Henry VIII , 111. 2).

Norman O'Neill and the Haymarket
Theatre are almost inseparable terms. O'Neill was Erst appointed Music Director of the Haymarket in 1908 and, with one short break, he has been there ever since. It is from his pen that a great deal of the delightful music incidental to the Haymarket plays has come. One of his earliest commissions in this regard was to write the incidental music to Maeterlinck's The Blue Bird in 1909; some of that music has been in concert programmes for nearly twenty-five years, and listeners will agree that it is still as welcome as ever it was. In 1920 he wrote the music to Barne's Mary Hose ; that, too, still delights us. When he is not in the theatre Mr. O'Neill is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music, and a member of the Board of the Royal Philharmonic Society, as was, by the way, his grandfather, Dr. Callcott, a hundred years ago.

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.
