: A Man for All Theatres: Sir Peter Daubeny

'The theatre's not in my family... and I knew nobody at all.'
When in 1943, as a young officer in the Coldstream Guards, Peter Daubeny lost an arm at Salerno, his hopes of an acting career were abruptly shattered. Instead, after the war, he embarked on a new career as an impresario, a career which culminated in the celebrated World Theatre Seasons at the Aldwych Theatre. He died on 6 August last year at the age of 54 from a brain tumour from which he had been suffering for some considerable time.
His story is told by his widow Lady Daubeny, with the voices of Antonio, Sir Richard Attenborough, Kitty Black, Richard Buckle, Alfred Davis, Martin Esslin, Edwige Fruillere, Lynn Fontanne, Hermione Gingold, Peter Hall, Terry Hands, Harold Hobson, Karolos Koun, Alfred Lunt, Micheal Mac Liammoir, Yehudi and Diana Menuhin, Roland Petit, Dame Marie Rambert, Paul Scofield, Sir Christopher Soames, Peter Ustinov and the recorded voice of Sir Peter Daubeny.

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.
