: 'Return to Clyde'

A Play specially written for broadcasting by EDWARD SHIELS
Jock, another engineer Masson Roberts and ship-yard workers and seamen, played by Albert Chalmers , Archibald Henderson , Wm. Jardine, J. W. Michie , David Mowat , Caven Watson ,
Eric Wightman
The action takes place on the s.s. Marmora ; the living-room of the Stuart's home in Glasgow ; and a Clyde shipbuilding yard
The s.s. Marmora has completed a long life of usefulness and is returning to Glasgow to be broken up. During the last few miles of the voyage the Second Engineer tells Mr. Young, a passenger, how much the old ship means to him. His father had taken a part in her building and, indeed, had been killed almost on the spot where they now stand talking. This play was first broadcast on July 9, 1934, and has been selected for revival as one of the most popular broadcasts in that year. The author, Edward Shiels , has had an unusually eventful career. He began ; as a grocer's errand-boy, then worked in a picture house, was a waiter, and served a five-years' apprenticeship in Beard-more's shipyard, Dalmuir. He intended to go to sea. but was prevented from doing so by ill-health. He then worked in a sewing-machine factory, and on leaving, took up journalism. He wrote
' Return to Clyde ' as a salute to his old fellow-workers, believing them to be the finest type in the world and in the hope that it would lead to their better appreciation, gangsters and other
. malcontents not being typical of Clydeside.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
