A Comedy in One Act by Keble Howard
Monica calls Jack a Philistine because ho suggests that, as an ending to a novel, to kiss is more jolly than to go out into the darkness -alone. Monica is a widow and Jack is a faithful if somewhat inarticulate lover. She tells him that she will be compelled to drop him if he shows signs of falling in love with her, and Jack produces a clinical thermometer and a stethoscope to keep himself at the correct state of mental and physical stability.

with Richard Pasco as John Henry Newman, Nigel Anthony as Edward Pusey
In 1845 John Henry Newman, co-founder and leading spirit of the Oxford Movement within the Church of England, suddenly and dramatically decided to become a Roman Catholic. It was a decision that shocked not only intellectuals, but virtually the whole of English society.
'You, Mr Newman? You seek admission to the Catholic church? But you are the most notable Anglican divine in the land. Together with Mr Pusey and Mr Keble , you have founded the Oxford Movement, which underpins and strengthens the entire established Church; It is surely hardly conceivable.'
By Keble Howard. Leonard is a strangerto fast cars, fast women and boats. His attempts to captain the NauShtvNvmph lead him into risen waters. With Maggie McCarthy Andrew Branch and Brian Parr

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.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
