Will television be allowed to go the way of the tabloid press?
This play, set in Fleet Street in the very near future, fantasises on the implications of allowing newspaper columnists like Percy Greer to turn TV chat shows into gladiatorial contests - of allowing unscrupulous men of power to create a new form of blood sport, where the victims are torn to pieces for the delight of the masses.
Percy Greer : 'I will turn your studio into a velvet abattoir.'
Other parts played by LINDA GARDNER and ANN RYE

The Child in Time by IAN MCEWAN abridged in ten episodes by DAVID BUCK
Read by Norman Jones (1) Stephen Lewis is a rich and famous writer of children's books. One day he experiences the cruellest loss that any parent can withstand - his own 3-year-old daughter is abducted in a supermarket. Set in the not-too-distant future, where beggars are licensed and parents instructed that childhood is a disease to be treated with discipline, this is both a moving and cautionary parable by one of Britain's best contemporary writers. Producer STUART KERR
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.
