' The Island in the Mist'
No. 2-' The Red Sea Lagoon'
A Play written for the Children's
Hour by FRANKLYN KELSEY
HERE is the second ' Island in the Misi ' play by Franklyn Kelsey ; you will
remember being thrilled by the first play three weeks ago. Today our intrepid father and his two sons set out for that elusive island in a ship the father should never have bought, for it is half-manned by the villain who stole the plans.
They set sail, and when they come to the lagoon in the Red Sea, safely navigate the vessel through the narrow channel. Is this the island of their dreams ?
Before they can find out, they encounter a native dhow (boat), and, after a terrific fight against overwhelming odds, they are captured by the Emir. Taken to his palace, they discover to their horror that they are to be sold as slaves. How are they to escape ?
So, breathlessly, from play to play, the story goes on.

: 'From Tolpuddle to T.U.C.'

Dramatic Interlude No. i
'The Dorsetshire Labourers'
A hundred years ago, when the worker, acting on his own, might as well have asked for the moon as for a rise of wages, it was discovered that acting together had a very different result. Trade Unions were formed throughout the country.
In the southern counties the weekly wage of the agricultural labourer was 10s. It was computed by those who didn't have to do it that such a man could support a family of six persons on 8s. 7}d. In Dorset, however, the standard wage was 7s.
Six farm labourers from the village of Tolpuddle, suffering hunger, cold, weariness, humiliation, and despair, after failing to get anything by asking for it, did what hundreds were doing-formed a Trade Union.
Panic seems to have seized the ruling class. It was discovered that though Trade Unionism was not against the law, an old mutiny act made the taking of secret oaths illegal.
The six simple, honest, religious men were arrested, and committed for trial. In a written statement from the dock, after the judge had summed up against them, George Loveless declared: 'We were uniting to preserve ourselves, our wives, and our children from utter degradation and starvation. We have injured no man's reputation, character, person, or property'. All six were found guilty and transported with convicts to Botany Bay.
The public outcry in England obtained their pardon, but it did not come through for two years - two years of chain-gangs and the lash. As the authors of 'The Tolpuddle Martyrs' write: 'The workers of today have stepped into a heritage battled and won for them by the valiant souls of yesterday'. These six are commemorated in Tolpuddle Church.
G.D.H. Cole tells the full story of the Dorsetshire Labourers in an article on page 89, and R.S. Lambert discusses this 'dramatic interlude' in this week's 'Background to the Broadcast' on page 85.

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.
