Picture Page: (Fifty-Fourth Edition)

A Magazine Programme of General and Topical Interest.
A characteristic of Cecil Madden's "Picture Page" that has made it a distinctive part of television programmes has been its unfailing topicality. The big events of the day, celebrities who are headlined in newspapers and eagerly discussed by the public, little-known people who have interesting tales to tell - all these have been featured. This evening's edition will be appropriate to the occasion, the eve of Coronation Day.
Because of programme alterations made necessary by the televising of the Coronation, both editions of "Picture Page" this week are being televised today instead of tomorrow.

The Man with the Flower in his Mouth

A dialogue by Luigi Pirandello and a Guitarist.

The Man With the Flower in his Mouth is one of the few Pirandello plays that are well known in the English theatre. It has been broadcast, and twice televised on the old thirty-line system. One of the television broadcasts was with puppets, produced by Jan Bussell. The play ends on a grim note, and the philosophy contained in it is characteristic of the author. He was born in Sicily in 1867. At the age of nineteen he went to Rome, and a few years later he travelled to Germany to graduate in philosophy at the University of Bonn. In 1925 he founded an Arts Theatre in Rome for the performance of new Italian and foreign plays, and in the same year he brought the company of this theatre to London for the production of some of his own plays. He died in December, 1936.

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.
