: Famous Trials: 3: Richard Hathaway

Compiled from the original records by George Wright
(See central column)
This is the third in the series of famous trials which was inaugurated by Peter Creswell's production of "The King's Tryall" in February, and made for something entirely new in radio drama. Howard Rose produced "Simon Lord Lovat" in May, and tonight Lance Sieveking is to produce "Richard Hathaway".

Again, nothing in the way of fiction has been added to historical fact, the dialogue and so forth being based on authenticated documents. It is apparent that the microphone technique of a static happening like a trial must differ altogether from that of the usual type of play in which there is a good deal of movement. Lord Chief Justice Holt, who presides over the trial, will be seated immediately under the microphone in order to be in the foreground of the listening auditorium, and listeners will be, so to speak, just behind his elbow and will hear the trial from exactly the same position as he will.

Dealing as it does with witchcraft, this trial has a special interest and fascination, and its historical truth gives reality that no fiction could supply. The engagement of Nicholas Hannen for the role of the Lord Chief Justice is good news. This distinguished West End actor comes far too seldom to the microphone.

The fourth trial in the series is to be that of Admiral Byng, and it is to be produced by Val Gielgud the first week in December.

('Richard Hathaway' was broadcast in the Regional Programme last night.)

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.
