(Under the direction of Herbert M. Prentice ) in ' The Romantic Young Lady' by Gregorio Martinez Sierra
Produced by Anthony McDonald
This play, which has been broadcast several times before, had its first Birmingham production at the Repertory Theatre a few years after the war. The story of the play gets into its stride quickly: a young lady, Rosario (played this evening by Brenda Bruce ), is complaining about the prosaic nature of her life when suddenly a man's hat, followed by its owner, comes through her window. What happens afterwards is worked out with all Sierra's customary skill.
The Repertory Theatre, which is supplying the ten characters, recently celebrated its silver jubilee, twenty-five years since its foundation by Barry Jackson.

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.
