A biographical impression of Eugene O'Neill by CHRISTOPHER BIGSBY with 'A hundred years ago in a small hotel in New York City a son was born to James O'Neill , rising star of a commercial theatre that his son would grow up to detest and reject.
Eugene O'Neill changed the direction of American theatre with plays such as The Emperor Jones, Mourning Becomes
Electra, Desire under the Elms, and The Iceman Cometh.
The autobiographical play
Long Day's Journey into Night, probably his finest achievement, was neither published nor performed in his lifetime. He ended his days in another hotel room, no longer able to write because of illness, locked up with his memories....'

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.
