Vlrf
The rise of the community drama in Scotland since the war has added greatly to the life of many a town, village, or country parish, and half its excitement lies in the fact that it brings people of all.trades into the new world of the theatre where problems, personal and technical, have to be faced. This series, devised by Andrew P. Wilson , well-known Scottish playwright, is concerned first with practical guidance. Listeners have already heard how the village society met, chose a play and a, cast for it, and put it into rehearsal. In this phase the day of reckoning arrives. The piece is performed, the adjudicator gives his verdict, and the players discuss just where their plans went wrong.

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.
