: ' RICHARD SAVAGE '

A Radio Play based on scenes from the novel of the same name by Gwyn Jones
The characters are
Richard Savage
Mr. Justice Page Dr. Elias Brendry
John, Viscount Tyrconnel
Mrs. Brett, formerly the Countess of Macclesfield
Dr. Samuel Johnson
James Gregory , a friend of Savage
Mr. Gabey, a man-at out-town
Mr. Rodgers, Landlord of the White

Mr Bowyer, a merchant of Bristol
Mr. Dagge, Gaoler of Newgate

Mrs. Carter} of the Mrs. Lamb Drury Lane Theatre and Gossips, bailiffs, servants, and other voices
The action of the play starts on December 7, 1727, in London, and ends on August 1, 1143, at Bristol The Production by Dafydd Gruffydd In the early half of the eighteenth century London was startled by the claim of a cobbler's apprentice at
Holborn to be the natural son of Richard Savage , Earl R.vers. Many famous people, including Dr.
Johnson and Alexander Pope , believed in Savage's claim, and helped him considerably in his attempt to establish it. Richard Savage however, was never accepted by the woman he claimed to be his mother and she would not even hear his name mentioned, so certain was she that he was not her son. The play listeners are to hear this evening deals with the latter half of Richard Savage's life.
Gwyn Jones is now accepted as one of the leading Anglo-Welsh novelists. ' Richard Savage ' was his first novel, and it is on this book that this evening's radio play is based.

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.
