: UPS AND DOWNS ON THE STAGE

Vera Beringer
Vera Beringer , who has acted in anything and everything from Shakespeare to the circus, made her first stage appearance in her mother's play Tares, longer ago, she says, than she cares to remember. She was the original Little Lord Fauntleroy at Terry's Theatre in Mrs. Hodgson Burnett 's dramatisation of her own story, in which Vera Beringer 's equally well-known sister, Esme Beringer , made her first professional appearance as Dick Tipton. Playgoers who can look back over the years must have seen delightful performances by both these sisters in a score of plays.
Vera Beringer 's talk will be full of the interest, pathos, and humour to be found in the theatre. She will speak of the excitements, adventures. and often misadventures, of acting in melodrama, both in -the nursery and on the stage.

: LONESOME-LIKE'

A Lancashire play by Harold Brighouse
(author of Hobson's Choice)
Produced by Edward Wilkinson
This human little play by Harold Brighouse has not been heard on the air for a good many years. It is a simple story simply told of an old woman about to be taken to the workhouse-and saved at the eleventh hour.
Since 1908 Harold Brighouse has been recognised as a leading Northern dramatist. Most of his plays first saw the light during Miss Horniman's régime at the Gaiety Theatre, Manchester.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
