A Commentary by OWEN REED with excerpts from
Nevill Coghill's Open Air Production of 'SAMSON AGONISTES' by John Milton
Relayed from Tewkesbury Abbey
As part of the Tewkesbury Festival, Milton's Samson Agonistes is to be performed in the grounds of the fine old Norman Abbey. The producer, Nevill K. Coghill, a don of Exeter College, Oxford, was responsible for a notable open-air production of the same drama in Exeter College Gardens in 1930. He also produced the O.U.D.S. in Hamlet. Last month his one-act play The Tudor Touch was relayed from the Oxford Playhouse.
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.
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.
