Richard III is said to have been responsible for the murder of three kings, his royal brother and two nephews (one of them Edward V), who were smothered in the Tower. So he came to the throne, and himself was killed at Bosworth Field.
This most magnificent villain in fact or fiction has had an irresistible appeal for actors down the years. Cibber, Garrick, and Kemble, Kean, Macready, and Phelps, Barry Sullivan , Irving-all have revelled in Richard III.
Malcolm Keen , who is to broadcast the part, has had a distinguished record in the theatre. In 191 he played Edward IV to Martin Harvey 's Richard ..t His Majesty's. He was the Caliph in Hassan (and also played the part on the air), and in 1923 played Claudius to John Barrymore 's Hamlet at the Haymarket. He was in Rain and in Josef Huss. In 1932 he joined the company at the Old Vic and played a round of leading parts in Shakespeare.
Listeners will remember his magnificent radio performance of lago to the Othello of Godfrey Tearle.

Actors,' on page 18.)

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE ROYAL DENTAL HOSPITAL OF LONDON by TOM WEBSTER
The Royal Dental Hospital of London is the only dental hospital and school in the country to maintain an independent existence, and it is the oldest dental hospital in Europe. It was founded in 1858, and there is only one older in the world.
Dental surgeons, trained at this hospital, have founded dental hospitals and schools in many countries in Europe and throughout the Empire.
Last year over 2,000 patients actually attended for treatment in one or other of its many departments, and all of these came from the poorer classes who could not afford to pay a dentist's fee. The value of this hospital's services both to dental surgery and the public alike is evident.

: LESLIE JEFFRIES and THE GRAND HOTEL, EASTBOURNE, ORCHESTRA

OLIVE GROVES (soprano)
Relayed from
The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
This well-known air of Saint-Saens is sung by Delilah in the second act of the opera, in her own house ; at the instigation of Samson's Philistine enemies, she has lured him there, with the treacherous design of. making him betray the secret of his strength, so that he may be robbed of it.
It is indeed a beguiling melody, and the change from its tender, sentimental opening to the passionate strain which follows never fails of its thrilling effect. In the opera Samson's voice joins in the last verse, echoing Delilah's words, but when the song is given separately it is she herself who completes it. (Soloist, LESLIE JEFFRIES> )
At the pianoforte, SYDNEY FFOULKES
Few vocalists regularly broadcasting with this orchestra are more popular than Olive Groves. It is six months since she was last heard with Leslie Jeffries, who will be the first to welcome her back to Eastbourne.
Again tonight Jeffries shows his flair for what the public wants bv choosing a programme of popular music, all of it melodious and all of it appealing to the heart. Among the items is Saint-Saens's ' Softly awakes my Heart which is surely one of the most famous operatic love songs.
Another high-spot of the evening is the first solo Jeffries has selected-Fibich's ' Poem ', arranged by Kubelik, who was the first to make it popular in this country when he played it before the war. It is well known to listeners in many different forms, including its latest form as a waltz-song.
Zdcuko Fibich (1850-1900) wrote about 700 works, of which, 350 short piano pieces, forming a kind of musical diary under the title of ' Moods, Impressions and Memories,' are particularly noteworthy. The ' Poem ' belongs to this diary.
In response to numerous requests from his unseen audience for repeats from his past programmes, Jeffries has included the selection from Glamorous Nights, which finishes its triumphant run at Drury Lane on November 30.

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.
