: THE ST. LEGER

A Running Commentary by R. C. LYLE , at the Grand Stand and R. V. LONG , at the Parade Ring from Town Moor Racecourse,
Doncaster
The St. Leger is the last of the five ' classic ' races of the year, all limited to three-year-olds. It is open to both colts and fillies.
The first St. Leger was run at
Doncaster in 1776, but the race had to wait a couple of years for its present title, which commemorates its originator, Colonel St. Leger. Only six entrants lined up for the original race, which was quite a minor feature of the usual September Doncaster meeting.

: CONSTANCE CUMMINGS in 'Episode '

Adapted by Marianne Helweg and Felix Felton from the original scenario by Walter Reisch for
Tobis-Sascha Filmindustrie A.G.
(By permission of Walter Reisch and Messrs.
Reunion Films, Ltd.).
The Charactcrs
Also a solicitor, an art pupil, a commissionaire, an actor, a chestnut man, and a prima donna
The action of the play takes place in Vienna soon after the war
THE BBC THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by MARK H. LUBBOCK
Production by FELIX FELTON
' Episode' will be broadcast again tomorrow in the Regional programme at 8.30
The Vienna of Episode is not altogether the Vienna of waltzes, Vienna in lilac-time, but still Vienna—where the people are gay and charming and sentimental, and things can be relied on to come right in the end.
The heroine is an art student whose mother has lost all her money. The other characters are a charming old gentleman, his quiet, competent wife, their sons' tutor (who plays a very important part indeed), and-a halfwitted parlourmaid. There are all sorts of complications. The nice old gentleman gets into a hole, and the tutor, helping him out, gets into a worse one.
Constance Cummings first went on the stage at sixteen and appeared on the London stage in 1934. Since 1931 she has been in films, two of her outstanding successes being in Movie Crazy and Channel Crossing.

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.
