' Stars in their Courses '

Mr. JAMES AGATE : Miss Irene Vanbrugh '
It is difficult for playgoers who delight today in the art of Irene Vanbrugh to realise that she achieved stardom, and so qualified for this unique series, before the turn of the cen- tiiry. After her success in Trelawny of the Wells, in 1898, she soared to giddy heights in th? following year in The Gay Lord Quex, to be followed by another peak in 1906, with His House in Order. She will be heard tonight in extracts from all three of these famous Pinero plays, in the course of Mr. Agate's enthusiastic account of a star who still shines brightly in the theatrical galaxy.

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.
