: At Nunappleton House

by DON TAYLOR with Barry Foster as the Man and Gary Watson as Andrew Marvell
David March , Ellen Dryden
Dialogues for String Quartet on a theme of William Lawes composed and conducted by H. R. CHAPPELL and played by THE SIDNEY SAX QUARTET
Produced by RICHARD WORTLEY Don Taylor says of his new play for radio: 'A modern man sits in a small room with gun-fire outside. His curtains are drawn. But his world and his conflicts are ours, and society answers his plea for artistic detachment in the most positive way. While reading Andrew Marvell, his life and the poet's interact.
Marvell had two years of peace at Nunappleton House in Yorkshire, writing most of his greatest poetry while tutor to the daughter of General Fairfax. In 1650 the powerful General had retired prematurely from the Civil War. The play dramatises this period of Marvell's life, studying the forces of conscience and responsibility in the shape of the General who relinquished his commitment and the poet who took it up.'
(Marius Goring reads Marvell's s poem Appleton House tomorrow at 10.35 pm)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
