: Who is there here who still loves me? Mrs Patrick Campbell

A portrait
We went round to see her in her dressing-room, and she was dark and radiant and diabolical and marvellous, and the first thing she said to me was, ' How many chins could you count from the front" MICHEÁL MAC LIAMMÓIR)
' Nowadays,' she said, they want flappers and I can'flap.' She meant one to tough and one did laugh. She meant one to share in her delighted view of herself as the actress who was finally outmoded because she couldn'flap (Giles PLAYFAIR ) Mrs Patrick Campbell , for whom Bernard Shaw wrote Pygmalion, was one of the most remarkable women of her day. She was not only, when she felt like it, a wonderful actress. She had great beauty, a prodigious wit. and a capacity for inspiring adoration, even in Shaw himself - the Joey ' of their long and extraordinary correspondence.
In this programme she is remembered by some of those who knew her, including:
Lord Chandos, Fay Compton
Alan Dent. Dame Edith Evans Sir John Gielgud
Catherine Lacey , Daisy Kennedy Mk'heal Mac Liamnioir

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.
