- an appreciation of Dame Sybil Thorndike by her son, John Casson
In the summer of 1904 Sybil Thorndike set off for America in Ben Greet's company of players. It was the beginning of a life in the theatre which was to span over 60 years. Sybil Thorndike , actress, pianist, Companion of Honour, Dame of the British Empire. Honorary Doctor of Laws and Literature, Freeman of the City of Rochester, wife. mother of four, and friend and confidant to thousands of people - old, young, great and small, famous, infamous, and even notorious - was above all things an enthusiast for life, and probably the most dearly-loved actress to be seen on the British stage this century.

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.
