Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Owen. BRIAN. George, AND
HUMPHREY Shewin , a few of her sons: Denis Quilley. Wilfrid Downing . M. Westbury. and D. Maddox
Music composed by Donald Swann
Henry Reed writes: I am not, of course, the author of this script. The author is my friend, Mr. Herbert Reeve ; but he has not been in much of a shape lately to collect his thoughts, and I have done it for him. After his earlier work on the late novelist Richard Shewin , which he collected together under the title A Very Great Man Indeed, Mr. Reeve had many requests for further information about other people whom he had chanced on during his researches. He does not think that it would be quite fair to any of his kindly informants to gratify this curiosity; but clearly an exception may be made in the case of the gifted composeress Hilda Tablet. '

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.
