Writing in 1848 Charles Dickens declared his support for a National Theatre, but added, 'I wish I could cherish a stronger faith than I have in the probability of its establishment on a national footing within 50 years.'
He was being optimistic. More than 100 years later a National Theatre still did not exist. But, from next Monday, at long last, the ' National ' will be in business. This programme tells the story of the National Theatre idea and of the famous men and women who, since the time of David Garrick , have helped to make it a reality.
With TRADER FAULKNER, MADI HEDD, MARTIN JARVIS , DENIS MCCARTHY. ALLAN MCCLELLAND , DAVID MARCH, and PETER WILLIAMS , and the voices, from the BBC Sound Archives, of LAURENCE OLIVIER , BERNARD SHAW and SYBIL THORNDIKE
Written and produced by ALAN HAYDOCK

Nowhere are the arguments about devolution being debated more fiercely than in Scotland. Some fear the Government's proposals could lead eventually to the break-up of the United Kingdom. Others say they do not go far enough. What lies behind the desire of many Scottish people to have a bigger say in running their own affairs? What are the issues at stake? And how far can devolution meet the growing demands of nationalism in Scotland today?
Producer TOM READ
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.
