BBC Radio Plays, radio 4, 1991

SATURDAY PLAYHOUSE AND CLASSIC SERIAL are listed in chronological order immediately below.

AFTERNOON PLAYS are listed lower down, M-T-W-Th-F. The Classic Serials appear in this list as a repeat on Friday afternoons, and Saturday Night Theatre appear as repeats on Monday afternoons.

MONDAY PLAYS are listed at the bottom.

Note from Clive Lever: I notice on several pages of the site, you list some plays from early 1991, and say that they only went out on long wave, but the reason for this is not known. Actually it is. I remember this happening to the play ‘The Edge’ from Fear On Four, as one example. This happened to all regular radio 4 programmes during the Gulf War, when the BBC turned over the FM frequency to 24-hour rolling news coverage of the conflict.

The Wide-Brimmed Hat
By Michael Wall. She was the talk of Venice in the 1850s. She was captivating, effusive. But was she really dangerous? When the gondola arrived to take Charles Catchpole to the Princess Malvezzi, he had no idea that it would deliver him into a world of romance and political intrigue. This play, which won Edward Petherbridge a Sony Award for his portrayal of Charles Catchpole , is repeated in memory of the playwright Michael Wall , who died earlier this year.
