Michael Craig continues to foray into the world of the musical producer in the USA. This week:
The Shuberts (part 2)
PEGGY WOOD : There are clean desk people and dirty desk people. Lee Shubert had the cleanest desk I've ever seen. He had all kinds of shows at his fingertips and his desk was just as clean, as if it were new.'
ROBERT RUSSELL BENNETT : ' Lee was more artistic than j.j. was. Lee had a great deal more sense of theatre than j.j. did. They were awful people to deal with - you just didn't get anything out of them at all.' J. FRED COOTS : 1 would say they proceeded along a certain line of acrimony. They didn't think of happiness, but of profits.'
And also the voices of: RAY BOLGER , IRVING CAESAR EVELYN LAYE , BEN OAKLAND
NONO OTERO . ARTHUR SCHWARTZ

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.
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.
