: 'The Immortal Garden'

A Play in a Prologue and Three Acts by H. C. G. STEVENS

The action passes over the period of a year and a few weeks, at the General's house in the South of England
Prologue and Act I, The Garden Room

Production by MARTYN C. WEBSTER
The Malvern Company was founded by Roy Limbert to serve not only his own theatre at Malvern, but other important provincial centres not catered for by Repertory companies. Mr. Limbert has been associated with Sir Barry Jackson in presenting the Malvern Dramatic Festivals since 1929.
In an introduction to the published version of The Immortal Garden, Dame Sybil Thorndike said : ' The author has done something very beautiful, and I think that he will succeed in calling again into being faiths that have died, and hopes that have failed. One is made to feel a sureness that the Life just beyond Death is a continuation-only a more free continuation, fuller and richer. It must be a great satisfaction to the author to know that he is helping people to realise this-in a world which deep down longs for faith, but is chained by material outlook '.

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.
