Sir BARRY JACKSON will discuss the Repertory Theatre Movement with Miss IRENE VANBRUGH in her Dressing Room at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre
THE Repertory Theatre Movement, although it virtually began in 1904 with the Vedrenne-Barker season at the Court Theatre, was far from a flourishing affair for some years. In 1901 there were three repertory theatres in Great Britain, only one of which-the Abbey Theatre in Dublin-still exists. Then in 1913 Barry Jackson founded and directed the Birmingham Repertory Company, and built a special theatre for it. This, owing largely to Jackson's heroic efforts-although serving in the Navy, he continued to direct the theatre during the War-survived, and is now only one of a host of such theatres. We have to thank Sir Barry Jackson for efforts on behalf of a movement which has saved serious drama from complete ruin in the last two decades.
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.
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.
