: THEATRE

' What's Wrong with the West End ? '
Elsie Beyer
Herbert Nolan
Maurice Browne
It is widely held that in many respects the London West-End theatre is not in the healthy state that it should be. This evening's speakers will discuss this question and endeavour to find wherein, if at all, faults lie.
Elsie Beyer is general manager of one of London's largest theatrical management concerns. Herbert Nolan is a foreigner who will bring to the question the objective eye of one looking at the subject from an impartial point of view. Maurice Browne , who will, so to speak, hold the scales of debate, is a well-known West-End manager.

: THE TRIAL OF FRANCOIS BENJAMIN COURVOISIER

for the murder of Lord William Russell
Compiled and written by Hartley Kemball Cook (by permission of Maurice Browne)Counsels for the Crown : Counsels for the prisoner : (by permission of Roy Limberl) Chief Witnesses :Chief Witnesses:
Produced by M. H. Allen
There are few dramatic settings more ' radiogenic ' than the Court of Law, as is evidenced by the number of radio reconstructions of famous trials that have recently been broadcast with such success.
This evening's programme should prove no exception to this rule. You will be taken back to the London Law Courts of 1840, where Francois Benjamin Courvoisier , a Swiss valet, is on trial for the murder of his employer, Lord William Russell.
The trial created something of a sensation, and many of the elite of the land nocked to the court in the hope that they would see justice done,* and an example made of a valet, who might, they thought, be setting a dangerous precedent.

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.
