: ' Writing on the Air'

Thomas Heywood
Thomas Heywood , in some ways the most distinctively English of all Elizabethan dramatists, was born in Lincolnshire. In 1633, he owned to having had ' either an entire hand, or at least a main finger in two hundred and twenty dramas '. In addition, he published several books and acted almost every day at the theatre. Much of his writing was done in taverns on :the backs of bills ; this, together with his insistence that his plays were meant to be acted, not read, has resulted in the survival of only a few of them. Heywood himself was an attractive character and his plays, written in simple, easy English, abounding in good broad humour, and much sincerity and kindliness, have given him a place with the other great dramatists of his day.
Extracts from The English Traveller and A Woman Killed with Kindness, together with a commentary on Hey wood's life, make up the programme tonight.

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.
