(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.
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

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

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.
