: ' TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF REPERTORY'

by Sir Barry Jackson
(An electrical recording of the talk broadcast in the Midland programme last night)
(Midland Programme)
Sir Barry Jackson is founder and director of the Birmingham Repertory Company, which gave its first production in 1913, and during its first season of just over four months produced over twenty plays by such playwrights as Shakespeare, Shaw, Galsworthy, Wilde, and Ibsen. Although he served in the Navy throughout the war, he continued to direct the repertory company in its work. In 1919 John Drinkwater 's Abraham Lincoln was first produced there before coming to the Lyric, Hammersmith. Among other record-breaking plays Sir Barry has produced are The Immortal Hour and The Farmer's Wife.
Few men in our time have done more for the theatre. By 1935 he had produced over 400 plays and operas for the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. He was the author (with Basil Dean) of that charming play Fifinella, and translated The Marvellous History of St. Bernard. He was the founder of the Pilgrim Players in 1907 and looked after the annual productions at the Malvern Summer Festival from 1929 to 1935.

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.
