Gladys Young as Gran and Carlo Cura as Tony
Other parts played by members or the BBC Drama Repertory Company
Produced by JOHN GIBSON Third broadcast
' ... an almost brilliant first play by Ray Jenkins ... Its full cleverness and the room left for one's own interpretations are realised on reflection some time afterwards. The play consists of conversations during a single evening between three people: a not always truthful boy of twelve, his grandmother, and his acid-tongued mother. A dangerous lack of understanding in the home is arrestingly brought out by what they say to one another and what the boy says into his tape-recorder.... But no more of the plot ... the play is to be repeated. What a comfort they are, these repeats! '
(Sunday Telegraph, August 1962)

DAVID CREASE in conversation
-with J. M. RICHARDS
In spite of the political changes in Brazil the building of the new capital has gone forward. It is now lived in by nearly 100,000 people, and it is fair to ask how the grand conception of a monumental city has stood up to the economic and practical realities.
David Crease is an English architect who worked with Oscar Niemeyer in Brasilia and is now practising there.

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.
