  IB Singer play - with Maurice Schwartz
Posted by: johnfalstaff - 11-08-2018, 11:39 AM - Forum: Requests - No Replies

a very interesting mention of an IB Singer play. has anyone heard this or heard of it?

"I also read Jewish stories on the radio as a teenager. Later I worked with Maurice Schwartz, the founder of the Yiddish Art Theater. In the '20s he staged a dramatization of a play written by I.J. Singer. Schwartz brought I.J. to New York to celebrate the success of the play, and I.J. brought his brother, Isaac Bashevis Singer. And that's how Isaac Bashevis Singer came to America."


anyway here is the radio show he mentions:

  REQ: R4, 6 Plays on [King] Arthur - Details Inside
Posted by: ramses505 - 11-07-2018, 12:28 PM - Forum: Requests - No Replies

6 plays themed on [King] Arthur

Written by Sebastian Baczkiewicz (plays 1-3) and Steve May (4-6), the six plays tell the tale of Arthur, a powerful tribal leader who brings political stability to 5th century Britain but fails to deliver a golden age. The action takes place in Britain between 493 AD and 515 AD. BBC Radio 4 produced the plays for airing Oct-Nov 2004. Music by Zbigniew Preisner, with additional music by Lucinda Mason Brown. Produced and directed by Jeremy Mortimer and Gordon House.

This page has the details;

Would be great if anyone had these.

Regards, thanks for looking.

  All Is Calm - The Story of the Christmas Truce
Posted by: CJB666 - 11-04-2018, 10:11 AM - Forum: Requests - No Replies


All Is Calm - The Story of the Christmas Truce

World War One

In All Is Calm, John Hurt tells the story of the most famous ceasefire in history, through diaries, letters and archive accounts from the soldiers themselves.

It is perhaps the perfect Christmas fable - of goodness vanquishing evil, if just for one day. And surely that's why the story is still told and wondered at a century later and remains so relevant as conflicts rage around the world. It has inspired music, poetry, films and even the occasional comic sketch.

So, as well as recalling the events of Christmas Day 1914, in the programme we'll also hear how a revival of interest in the story was inspired by the stage musical Oh ! What a Lovely War The Poet Laureate Carol Anne Duffy reads her poem about the events of Christmas Day 1914 and author Michael Morpurgo explains why they inspired him to write a story about the Christmas Truce for children.

In 1990, The Farm composed All Together Now, an anthem inspired by the events of 1914, and songwriter peter Hooton explains why he has re-recorded the song with English and German schoolboys to mark the centenary. And of course, that famous football match in No Man's Land was the setting for the video that accompanied Pipes of Peace, Paul McCartney's Christmas number one of 1983. It even inspired a memorable scene in an episode of Blackadder.

  The Now Show
Posted by: blitzkriff - 11-02-2018, 08:22 PM - Forum: Requests - Replies (3)

For years I have absolutely loved this BBC Radio 4 Comedy Show, hosted by Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis.  Most of the old stuff is impossible to find anywhere now.

Can anyone seed any seasons of the Now Show pre Season 53 (the current season)?  I'd love to hear it again.  I will gratefully re-seed, and I am archiving (and will seed) Season 53 as soon as it has completed!
