: Mai Zetterling Michael Hordern. Norman Shelley and Carleton Hobbs in ' THE UNTAMED'

(' La Sauvage ') by Jean Anouilh
Translated from the French by Kitty Black
Music composed and arranged by John Hotchkis
Radio adaptation and production by Raymond Raikes
Characters in order of f peaking:
La Saurage is early Anouilh, written in 1934 though not produced in Paris until four years later. It is one of the first pieces noires (the work of his maturity being either noir, rose, or brillant) and also the first to s-how the truly distinctive Anouilh touch. That touch, in particular, lies in his gift for creating a unique theatrical a'tmosphere, and certainly she scene in the frowsty seaside cafe with whidh the play opens could be the work of no other dramatist. In the restaurant a great pianist, Florent, first sees and falls in love with the little Therese, who plays under her father's tutelage in the third-rate orclie^ra. He takes her away, and tries to make her his own by g.v.ng her the thing* she has never enjoyed, with wha»t results the title indicates. The theme here is the loneliness and intractibility of human nature, and Therese is the clear forerunner of the later Anouilh heroines, Eurydice and Jeanette. Peter Forster

Director, Francis Chagrin
Benjamin Britten wrote his Sinfonietta in 1932, when he was an eighteen-year-old student at the Royal College of Music, and dedicated it to Frank Bridge. Scored for flute, oboe, clarnet, bassoon, horn, string quartet, and double-bass, it is in three movements: Poco presto ed agitato, Andante [Variations), and Tarantella. Ernst Krenek's Symphonische Musik, written some thirty years ago, is scored for the same combination an Britten's Sinfonietta without the horn, and is in two movements. D.C.

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.
