: AT THE SHIP INN'

A Cornish Causene by Bernard Walke
Round the fire in the inn kitchen are Joe Hunkin , an old fisherman who scorns modern improvements
Tim Trevorrow , another fisherman whom Joe Hunkin terms a 'middling man'
Bill Tregembo , a younger fisherman
The Colonel, a resident in Mevagissey
Willie Tresize , a youth, also a fisherman
William Henry Hocking , a fisherman who is accounted a good singer
Miss Barren, the hostess of The
Ship
Directed by Filson Young
Produced by the author and broadcast from The Ship Inn, Mevagissey
(Western Programme)
For the first time Bernard Walke and Filson Young have deserted bt.
Hilary at Christmas time. At the Ship Inn is not a mystery play, m fact it is not really a play at all. The ' actuality ' setting is the kitchen of a Mevagissey inn, where real fishermen round the roaring fire are discussing the way of the world: old times, new times, old ways and new ways, 'the old days with a south-easterly wind and all the boats going to sea-beating and tacking— over and across from one side of the pool to the other so that a man were near wore out before he got clear of the harbour', and the present day when ' every boat in the harbour has a motor in her ' and a man can ' steer a boat with his leg, too lazy to put his hand to the tiller and the rest of the crew standing up torrard with their hands in their pockets .

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.
