'This Blasphemous Outrage'

Written by JANET HITCHMAN
Narrated by Manning Wilson with Mary Wimbush as Dorothy L. Sayers
The fall of Singapore to the Japanese forces is surely God's judgment on the British people for allowing the BBC to disseminate this blasphemous outrage. In 1940 Dorothy L. Sayers was invited to write a series of radio plays on the life of Christ for Children's Hour. Even before the plays were broadcast there were angry allegations of blasphemy.
This is the dramatic story behind that first production of a radio classic. The Man Born to be King, based on material in the BBC's Archives: with recorded contributions from VAL GIELGUD and members of the original cast including ROBERT SPEAIGHT (Christ), JOHN LAURIE (John the Baptist) and HERON CARVIC (Caiaphas). Producer ALAN HAYDOCK
(Repeated: Friday 11.5 am)

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.
