Older generations of playgoers will welcome the return to the microphone of Cyril Maude. Listening to him in a part that has become almost as famous on the air as it was on the stage, it will be difficult to realise that he made his first stage appearance in 1884. None of his innumerable leading parts endeared him more to the public than that of old Bullivant, who so belied his grumpy exterior and taught the younger generation how to catch jewel thieves.
by Edgar Wallace : short story from ' Again the Three Just Men,' adapted for broadcasting by Frank Ellwood , and produced by Hugh Stewart
Other parts played by members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company.
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.
