A Play by ARTHUR McFARLAND
Produced by JAN BUSSELL
The action of the play takes place in the Royal Naval Recruiting Depot at Liverpool in the summer of the year 1778, during the war of American Independence. The play is intended to depict the difficulties of recruiting and the activities of American spies in Liverpool at that time. It is founded partly on fact, and the title is taken from the warning cry which was given when the impressment men were seen in the streets
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.
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.
