Rptd from yesterday 12 noon

: Sunday Play: The Devil's Disciple

To mark the 50th anniversary of his death, Bernard Shaw 's paradoxical masterpiece was specially recorded in Los Angeles with a distinguished cast of American and British actors. Set against the background of the War of Independence, the play remains topical, witty and provoking. In classic
Shavian fashion, received wisdom is turned upside-down, loyalties are unconventional, appearances frequently deceiving and the outcome surprising. As a postscript to tonight's play Martin Jarvis reads from Shaw's preface to The Devil's Disciple.
Soldiers and townsfolk played by students of the film and theatre department, UCLA. California. led by Michael Hackett. Director Martin Jenkins. Producer Rosalind Ayres. Programme of the Week: page 135

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
