A comedy by A. A. Milne
Presented by the Oxford Repertory
(under the direction of Eric Dance and Stanford Holme)
The action of the play takes place in the morning-room of Marden House, Buckinghamshire, on a day in July
Production by Lance Sieveking
The company taking part in this play, the Oxford Repertory Players, have broadcast frequently in the past. Their last appearance at the microphone, listeners may remember, was in The Dover Road.
For the past eleven years the company's headquarters has been the Oxford Playhouse, a building that was once a big-game museum, but plans have now been made for a new theatre, costing £25,000, to be built in Beaumont Street.
Apart from the appearance of Richard Goolden (the BBC's own ' Mr. Penny ') as Mr. Pim, an interesting member of the cast is David Tree , who is the son of Viola Tree.
This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 2.25

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.
