: < The Great Adventure'

A Comedy of pre-War London by ARNOLD BENNETT
The Characters are
Act I. The front room of Ilam Carve's house, 126, Redcliffe Gardens , during an evening in August
Act II. A private room at the Grand
Babylon Hotel, the following day
Act III. Janet's sitting-room at Werter
Road, Putney, two years later
Act IV. Lord Leonard Alcar 's study,
Grosvenor Gardens, the next afternoon.
Adapted and produced by S. A-
BULLOCH
This play by Arnold Bennett arose out of his novel ' Buried Alive ' which was written in 1908, the same year as his 'Old Wives' Tale '. If it was not his most successful book, it was certainly one of his most successful plays. An eminent and eccentric painter changed his identity with his own valet, and possibly the idea and its extravagant complications were better suited to the theatre, or it may be that the play, when first produced by Granville Barker at the Kingsway in 1913, owed its big success to the brilliant acting of Henry Ainley and Wish Wynne.
In the broadcast version Ainley's part will be played by Harold Scott and Wish Wynne 's by that charming actress Hilda Trevelyan , the original and some say the only Wendy in Peter Pan.
A. Harding Steerman as Father Looe is the only actor in tonight's cast to play the part he took in the original production, and Cecil Brooking , who is to play Mr. Texel, took this part in the revival at the Haymarket in 1924. (' The Great Adventure' was broadcast in the Regional programme on Tuesday night)

The Rt. Hon. Sir AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN ,
K.G., M.P.
Few would disagree with the choice of Sir Austen Chamberlain to wind up this important series. The man who has represented one constituency for over twenty years is a man in whom his electors believe. In the minds of the people of Great Britain, as in the minds of the majority in West Birmingham, the stature of Sir Austen has grown with the years.

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.
