Excerpts from programmes for the week beginning August 25

: 'Wallace'

by J. MELVILLE THOMSON
A Commemoration of the death of a hero, August 23, 1305
' They do not fail who die in a great cause' Byron
Produced by GORDON GILDARD
This play deals with the life of the great Scottish national hero from the time that he saw himself in a vision as his country's liberator and the antagonist of Edward Longshanks , down to the sentence of death passed on him by an English court. Mr. Thomson regards Wallace not merely as a romantic figure, but as a fierce, almost unmanageable force which stops at nothing, even the death of friends, to secure Scottish independence. It is one of the traditions of the playwright's craft that many of the best plays are written by those who have had experience on the stage. Mr. Thomson is in this tradition. Before going to London he was a prominent member of the Scottish National Players.

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

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.
