: Sunday Play: Little Malcolm and His Struggle against the Eunuchs

A second chance to hear David Halliwell's play, written in 1965 and one of the most influential stage plays of the 60s which won Halliwell the Evening
Standard Award for most promising playwright. It tells of Malcolm - a would-be Hitler from Huddersfield - an art student dismissed by a long-suffering principal who can no longer tolerate his sneering laziness. Alone in his freezing studio Malcolm plots the downfall of his enemies and persuades his fellow art students to take up arms against eunuchry by forming the Party of Dynamic Erection.
The play is a comedy that shows how a hunger for power and the ability to manipulate followers can lead to personal disaster.

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.

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.
