A play for broadcasting translated by Michael Bullock with Edward Chapman as Mr. Biedermann
Bernard Bresslaw and Michael Flanders
Continued in next column
In this play written for radio-first produced in Atunich in 1953 and since made into a television play and produced on the stage in the German-speaking world and in France-the witty Swiss author introduces us to a self-satisfied small-town citizen whose conduct as an employer and a manufacturer of hair restorative may not be above reproach but who has a sentimental streak and so cannot be harsh to two individuals who establish themselves in his loft. Surely these people cannot be the much-feared fire-raisers who have already caused such damage in the neighbourhood? If so, would they heap up so much inflammatory material and even ask their host for a box of matches? A situation which could well reflect upon our world..... Produced by H. B. FORTUIN

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.
