ONLY ONE MAN FOR THE PART

A play for radio by Gale Pedrick with Heron Carvic as Ian Hudson
TV producer Ian Hudson is about to produce a new serial by the famous author. Brian Sweetiove , whose radio serials invariably run for years. Sweetiove and John Armitage , a highly skilled and popular broadcaster, used to be friends, but perhaps they shared one thing — or was it one person -too many. At least, that might have been one reason why the casting of a new serial should lead to real-life tragedy.

Produced by AUDREY CAMERON

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.
