(Part of Act 1)
The programme compered by Cyril Wood
As more than four years have elapsed since the last ' Facet ' programme was broadcast, it is perhaps as well to remind listeners that in this series the plan is to present in each programme several extracts from plays all treating the same dramatic theme, but from entirely different angles, and by different authors.
Tonight the subject is 'All's Fair', and as this is such a comprehensive subject, and cannot adequately be dealt with in one short programme, the same subject will be continued on Wednesday at 8.45, and on Saturday at 6.15 in the Western programme.
Tonight's programme will be repeated on Wednesday at 1.15 in the Regional programme.
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.
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.
