Three Phases of a Village Dramatic
Society's Winter Activities
Devised by A. P. Wilson
Phase 1—' The Society meet'
They select and cast a play and hold their first rehearsal
This is the first of three programmes which Andrew P. Wilson , author of many successful Scottish comedies, has written to illustrate the problems confronting an amateur dramatic society from the moment it decides to 'put on' a play. Its evolution is followed until the day when the play is given, the adjudicator speaks his mind, and the ' inquest ' is held by the members of the society. This week's ' phase ' is occupied with the preliminaries. Watch that ' property man ' whose accent debars him from a certain part. He'll crop up again!

Admiral Cochrane, tenth Earl of Dundonald, fought for Britain against Napoleon's navy, for Chile and Peru against Spain, and for Brazil against Portugal, and is regarded by many as a more brilliant naval commander than Nelson himself. Cochrane was also a scientist and an inventor of note. A hundred years before the Great War he evolved the idea of the gas attack, but it was deemed so horrible by the Prince Regent and his ministers that the plans were kept secret until revealed by Winston Churchill during the War. This programme was first produced in December of last year.

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.
