: 'Romance'

A Radio Play by PETER CRESWELL
Founded on the Novel of the same name by JOSEPH CONRAD and FORD MADOX HUEFFER
The Play produced by PETER CRESWELL
' How John Kemp , Gentleman, of Hayes, in . the County of Kent, went questing a-field in search of Romance ; How he became embroiled with the Free-traders (smugglers) of the Romney Marsh ; How he was forced to flee from the Red-breasts (Bow Street Runners) and took ship to the West Indies; How he adventured among the Separationists and Malcontents of the Island pf Jamaica; How he fought the battle of the Weak against the Strong; How he escaped at peril of his life from the pirates of the Rip Medio , only to find himself cfiarged with piracy before the Marine Court of Hakana, in Cuba, the Ever-
Faithful Island; How by the machinations of his enemies he was delivered over to His Britannic Majesty's Government to stand trial for his life ; How through all the hardships and dangers of his quest, Love led him like a beacon and Romance found him at last.'
' This was Romance ; And in the days to come We shall look backward on the time fulfilled Knowing the richness that we helped to build, Though we, unroving, toiled the slopes of home, Nor learnt the splendid Mutability
Of shifting chance; Unseeing, since too near, Unknowing since we saw, but saw not clear; Then, from the haven of what had to be We shall salute as Gallant in our Days
Dear Custom and the Ordered Ways we trod,
Hailing Romance, those steps that seemed to plod, The Stirring Measure of the Commonplace; Knowing, by paths we did not understand,
We, too, Adventurers, won the Golden Land.'
P.C.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
