The prize-winning Turkish play by Basar Sabuncu translated by Nermin Streater
"...a small window bought from a junk dealer, two doors that do not match, and walls not properly plastered yet. In one corner a small sink, a wire-mesh cupboard, and a few plate-shelves serve as a kitchen; in another corner a curtain of cheap flowered-cotton conceals Grandfather's bedroom. Bits of embroidery (remnants of Sabiha's dowry) have been tossed on the table, the radio, and the metal trunk as if to prepare the Shanty for a special occasion..."
This play won an Honourable Mention in the recent EAU 'Eurotheatre' Competition, and was also awarded a prize by the Society of Art Lovers in Turkey as one of the two best plays of the year. The author, Basar Sabuncu, works with Ankara Radio.

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.
