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

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.
