A play by J. M. Barrie
Characters in order of speaking
Produced by Andrew Stewart
The Will is one of Barrie's lesser-known plays, although its obscurity seems quite undeserved. It is a masterly little play and clearly written by a great artist.
It is not written from the whimsical point of view that people declare to be ' typically Barrie', but is a bitter-sweet morsel in which the dramatist shakes his head kindly and regretfully over human failings. The failing in this case is ambition for place and social grandeur. Barrie shows the deadening and hardening effect on two ordinary young people.
The Will is a more bitterly satirical slant on the theme that Barrie himself stated elsewhere as 'there is no more impressive sight in the world than a Scotsman on the make'.

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.
