IF THIS PLAY broadcasts as well as it reads, it may make history tonight by proving to be an ideal dramatic medium for the microphone. Suspense, continuity, clarity, it has all these; and the craftsmanship of conveying both the passing of time and the events that have happened by means of interlocutors, or chroniclers, is entirely satisfactory. Badly handled, the play might easily fail in its realism even though every line is authentic, but its art is such that it pulses with actuality.
A special article on Charles I by Hilaire Belloc appears on page 223, and the producer. explains the idea behind the broadcast in an article on page 219.
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.
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.
