'SAVONAROLA BROWN'

by Max Beerbohm
An account of one Ladbroke Brown (dramatist), a martyr in youth, a maestro in maturity
Incorporating for the first (and possibly the last) time a broadcast of his uncompleted tragedy in five acts—
'Savonarola'
In which the roles of:—Savonarola, Lucrezia Borgia , the Borgias' Fool, St. Francis of Assisi, Leonardo da Vinci, Dante, Lorenzo and Cosimo de Medici, Pope Julius II, various Apprentices, Friars, Sacristans, Murderers, Cloaked Figures, Papal Legates, Guelfs, Ghibellines, and Other. Noted Figures of the Renaissance are depicted by a cast of Equally Noted Performers
The story of Ladbroke Brown is related, on behalf of Mr. Beerbohm, by V. C. Clinton-Baddeley , and the entire production and transportation to this unsuspected medium is in the hands of John Cheatle , who in accordance with what he imagines to be the wishes of Mr. Brown, has also composed the music for the songs
Cast :
Robert Atkins , Baliol Holloway , Frank Birch , Leslie French, Bruce Winston , Geoffrey Wincott , Norman Shelley , Philip' Wade,

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.
