(Part of Act 2)

(Part of Act 2)
' The New Sin ' by Macdonald Hastings
(Part of Act 1)
The programme compered by Cyril Wood
(From West)
It is four years since the last Facet programme was broadcast. The idea is to show how very differently the same dramatic theme can be handled by different authors, the theme chosen this week being that of ' All's Fair '. Today Regional listeners are to hear excerpts from plays on this theme by authors as varied as Galsworthy, St. John Ervine , and Macdonald Hastings (Western listeners also heard these same playwrights on Monday). Tonight and on Saturday, on the Western wavelength only, listeners will hear how the same theme is treated by two further selections of playwrights.

Peter Cornelius , author, poet, and composer, and one of the leaders of the self-styled ' New German' school, of music which gathered round Liszt at Weimar in the middle of last century, had been dead a good many years before his work began to receive its fair share of success. The comic opera, The Barber of Baghdad, was performed only once in his lifetime.

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.
