: Afternoon Play: The Gallery

By Alan Plater.
The opening night of a new Tyneside art gallery is thrown into jeopardy by the well-meaning but ill-trained staff. Dodgy wiring, an over-zealous cleaner and a retired greyhound add to the comic mix.

Afternoon Play: The Gallery 2.15pm Radio 4
If the name sounds familiar that's because the playwright Alan Plater has been penning dramas since 1962, when he got his first break on the TV series Z Cars. He's gone on record with his disappointment that, over the subsequent decades, middle-of-the-road TV dramas have been obliged to focus upon personal relationships. There's no room for spicier, extra ingredients - like social comment or a bit of politics. This does not apply on radio, where writers are awarded so much more freedom. Plater's play is set in a supremely trendy art gallery in Tyneside. The only hiccup is that the staff are all "mature" - they've been hired to tick a politically-correct quota box. This is a clever, comic poke at daft bureaucracy, in which age and experience trash fashion and beauty. (Jane Anderson)

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.

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.
