National Programme Daventry

' Rope'

THE stage play, Rope, of which this is a a microphone adaptation, was produced in London nearly three years ago. It enjoyed considerable success and had a long run. It is a curious play, dealing with two neurotic young men who have a theory of murder as a fine art. They strangle a perfectly harmless friend purely for the excitement of the thing. They then give a supper-party with the body hidden in their room. The atmosphere of tension is the theme of the play ; the young men's nerves slowfy breaking as they realize successive flaws in their ' perfect' crime. As may be seen, Rope is not everybody's play; it is strong meat. But those who like a dramatic thriller, brilliantly handled; should not miss it.

'Family Tree'

By PHILIP WADE
Philip Wade is the author of two previously-performed radio plays, Boss and Oranges and Lemons, and a well-known and experienced radio actor. Family Tree is a drama of traditional loyalties. Newby Hall has belonged to the Ebbworths for three hundred years. Its stones, trees, gardens, servants have achieved a communal being, until the owners feel, far from the place belonging to them, that they belong to it. We glimpse the state of the house and the family at three periods, 1911, 1921 and 1931. Financial stress brings unwelcome sales; then Newby is let furnished ; at last, it is sold by auction. The individual drama of the characters is well worked out, but the author is chiefly concerned with the fortunes of the house and estate, symbolised in the play by a magnificent vine.

Family Tree

A Drama by Philip Wade
Produced by Gordon Gildard
Cast (in order of their speaking):
The action passes in and around Newby Hall
PHILIP WADE, actor and playwright, has specialised in 'character' parts from Fluellen in Henry V to Tweedle-dum in Through the Looking-Glass. His connection with broadcasting has also inspired him to write several plays and sketches specially for the microphone, of which Family Tree is the most notable. In fact, when this play was first produced in 1932 it was hailed as 'the play of the year'.
Family Tree is the story of a county family and its servants. 'When this red earth', says Aunt Agatha, 'has stained your hands for over a thousand years your life becomes more than a habit - it becomes a part of the soil itself.'
The elder daughter elopes with the estate agent, and is consequently ostracised by the family. The fortunes of the family decline. But there is a happy ending. The characterisation is finely drawn, and the treatment (with effects) is novel.
Family Tree was broadcast in the Regional programme last night.

'Wedding Group'

by PHILIP WADE
Produced by HOWARD ROSE
Characters
Most of us at some time or other have looked through an old photograph album-the family kind, bound in leather with gilt clasps-and have wondered what sort of lives were really led by the men in chimney-pot hats and the women .in crinolines looking up at us with such surprised expressions from the stiff pages.
A picture like that was taken in Edinburgh in 1860-Wedding Group- and Philip Wade 's play is an attempt to describe how it came to he taken. One thing is certain-if things had not fallen out as they did, it would never have been taken at all.
Philip Wade jumped into fame as a radio playwright with Family Tree four years ago, and enhanced his reputation with Oranges and Lemons. He was featured in ' People You Hear' in April.
An article by Philip Wade will be found on page 3. This play will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

'FAMILY TREE'

by Philip Wade
Produced by Lance Sieveking
Cast
The action takes place in and around
Newby Hall
This drama of traditional loyalties is a second revival of one of Philip Wade 's most successful radio plays. It was first produced in 1932 and was described by critics as the radio play of the year. It was revived in 1934. Newby Hall has belonged to the family of the Ebbworths for so long that, far from the place belonging to them, they seem to belong to it. We are given a glimpse of the state of the house and the family in 1911, 1921, and 1931. The changing fortunes of the house are symbolised in the play by a magnificent vine.
' Family Tree' was broadcast in the National programme on Wednesday

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.
