[edit] BBC Radio Drama

The BBC Repertory Company, was founded in 1940. Early stars included Norman Shelley and Carleton Hobbs, who have played Watson and Holmes in over nintey radio dramas.

The "Rep" kept an ensemble cast of 30 to 35 actors, up until the mid-1980's. This cast included young theatre talent, such as Anthony Daniels and William Nighy, and was sometimes expanded with popular names.

This section of the BBC is now called the National Radio Company or NRC, and has been awarded many times.
