In this thesis I have endeavoured to trace the development of radio drama in Great Britain through a selection of plays by authors representative of the various phases through which the form has passed during its growth. I do not pretend to have given a fully documented account of all the important plays by all the important authors. That would require easy access to the British Broadcasting Corporation script library.
Therefore the length of the chapters should not be taken as any indication of the relative importance of the phases. Owing to the scarcity of bibliographies and the fact that not all those radio plays which have been published were obtainable, there are many gaps which I regret I have been unable to fill. I am also conscious of not having done justice to many authors, particularly Mr. V.G. Gielgud O.B.E., who, as Head of Drama for the BBC, has guided radio drama from its infancy in 1928 to the present day.
