: PORTRAIT OF MY MOTHER

by Mrs. F. Bennett
Here is a talk by the one daughter of a woman who had ten children. She was born in Yorkshire, and went into service. When she married, the landowner who had employed her built her a house. There she founded her family.
Three of her sons never came back from the war. The remaining six are all alive, and all doing well in various parts of the world. They were all afraid of her, and all adored her. It is the daughter's recollection of an individual woman, of some of her sayings and doings that mattered so much to those who were dear to her, that listeners are to hear this evening.

: MARIE TEMPEST

in 'GHOSTS' by Henrik Ibsen
Characters in order of speaking
The action takes place in Mrs. Alving's country home in Western Norway and falls within twenty-four hours
The period is Norway of the middle eighties
The play arranged and produced by Peter Creswell
When in the late eighteen-seventies,
. Ibsen began his single-handed crusade against social hypocrisy, he could hardly have expected to make himself popular. But when Pillars of Society (1877) and A Doll's House (1879) were succeeded in 1881 by Ghosts, even he was staggered by the tempest aroused by his play.
When Ghosts was first performed in England ten years later (on March 13, 1891), the outcry in the London Press can only be described as hysterical. One great newspaper, for instance, described it as ' this disgusting representation ... an open drain; a loathsome sore unbandaged ... literary carrion.'
Today Ghosts is recognised as both a stage classic and an effective moral sermon. But the danger of burying one's head, ostrich-like, in the sand of false, conventional idealism is perhaps more apparent to us than to Ibsen's contemporaries.
Read what Marie Tempest thinks of her part in this play, in the interview with her which appears on page 9.

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.
