: CYRIL MAUDE in the title-part of 'OLD BANNERMAN'

A West Indian Yarn
-by Eden Phillpotts with Edward Chapman as Captain Greenleaf
Production by Cyril Wood
The action of the play takes place before the days of wireless-in fact, sixty years ago, on board The Flying Fish, a little tramp steamer plying in the Antilles. The events occur on her voyage from a small island in the Northern Group to Kingston, Jamaica, and are spread over a space of three days. The play begins at noon, when The Flying Fish is about to sail.

Commander J. M. Scott , R.N.
When Commander Scott recently took up his appointment as King's Harbour Master, Plymouth, he came on a number of notebooks and diaries belonging to a predecessor. On examining these he discovered that they contained all details of arrivals and departures at the port of Plymouth during the Napoleonic wars, and included particulars of French men-of-war captured in naval engagements from 1796 to 1816. It is of these discoveries that he is going to speak tonight. It is interesting that the last insertion in this batch of notebooks was the significant one ' 25 April 1823-Comet, Steam Vessel. Arrived'.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
