: ' Clyde Built'

A Play in Three Acts by GEORGE BLAKE
Ccst in order of their speaking :
The action passes in what the Crockett's call, quite simply, the sitting-room on An afternoon in April An evening in August and An evening in September in the year 1913
The Play produced by GORDON GILDARD
(From Glasgow)
As the giant Cunarder No. 534 nears completion, a programme about the Clyde and shipping becomes more and more topical. Clyde Built was first produced by the Scottish National Players at the Athenaeum Theatre, Glasgow, in 1922. The play deals with the fortunes of a Greenock ship-building family prior to the Great War. Matthew Crockett retires from business in favour of his son, Tom Crockett , but the latter through some frailty of character is far from successful in the business. Indeed, the firm of Crockett is on the verge of bankruptcy and it would appear that the family can be saved from destitution only by amalgamating with a combine. Matthew Crockett 's grand-daughter, Jean Bannerman , becomes a pawn in the game and it is settled that she will marry the son of Sir William Merson when the transfer of the business takes place. The return of her lover, Captain Douglas, who was believed to have been drowned, upsets the plans that have been made and Matthew Crockett dramatically tears the transfer deeds in pieces and flings them in the fire. Clyde-built stands for honest workmanship and sterling character.

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.
