Malcolm Keen and Leo Genn with Beverley Dunn in The Lark by JEAN ANOUILH
Translated by Christopher Fry Adapted for broadcasting by Cynthia Pughe
Anouilh tells us, in the preface to his play, that he makes no attempt to explain the mystery of Joan. He intersperses her trial with a senes of flashbacks, showing her whole career in a number of skilful and imaginative improvisations.
Production by VAL GIELGUD

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.
