: 'REPEAT REFRAIN'

A selection of music specially composed for past radio shows by Kenneth Leslie-Smith with Margaret Eaves , George Melachrino ,
Helen Clare , and Ronnie Hill
BBC Revue Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Presented and compered by Vernon Harris
Probably this popular composer's happiest radio shows were Love Needs a Waltz (his first with book and lyrics by James Dyrenforth ) and Puritan Lullaby (also with Dyrenforth). Two songs from the latter — ' Always ' and ' Canterbury Fair ' --were winners. Since the war Kenneth Leslie-Smith has provided the music for Hey, Listen, Wings over Ruritania, Hocus Pocus, and incidental music for the hilarious Naunton Wayne - Basil Radford serial, Crooks' Tour.
For today's broadcast
Vernon Harris has made a selection of some dozen or so numbers from the above shows.

: TRAVELLING FILM THEATRE'

Details of an unusual wartime service will be given in this talk by two Scottish schoolmasters, who will tell of their adventures in entertaining ' evacuee ' children with film shows in the depths of the country. To city children to whom ' the pictures ' have been a routine pastime of the week, a village without a cinema must have seemed a curiously blank place, and their joy at the arrival of the travelling film theatre can readily be imagined.
Remembering the snowstorms and severe weather of last winter, listeners will not be surprised to hear that at times these schoolmasters had no easy task in moving from place to place, and that they encountered many snags. But they have no hesitation in saying that the compensations outnumbered the difficulties.

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Leslie Heward
It is now well over a year since music-lovers have had the opportunity of hearing Leslie Heward. After a very successful tour of America he returned to England in the early weeks of the war, and then fell seriously ill. This evening will be his first appearance as a conductor since his illness.
Heward is unquestionably one of England's finest conductors. Particularly sensitive are his interpretations of the French masters, and therefore his performance of Debussy's ' L'Apres-midi d'un faune ' should be one of the highlights of this evening's programme.

: ' WHAT EVERY WOMAN KNOWS'

A comedy by J. M. Barrie
Adapted for broadcasting by Cecile Walton
The action passes in the little living-room of Alick Wylie 's house in a Scottish country town ;' an election room in Glasgow ; the Shands' London home ; and the Comtesse de la Briere's riverside cottage
Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
This is Barrie minus all the whimsies and fantasies of fairyland, revealing himself as a deft manipulator of completely human beings in purely human situations. His theme is a dual one-Woman the all-powerful and Scotsmen on the make.
Although every part is a good one, for Barrie never wrote a bad part in his life, the play is essentially a one-woman play ; and it is good to know that in this broadcast the outstanding part of Maggie Wylie , created by Hilda Trevelyan in 1908, will be played by Jean Taylor Smith , the Glasgow radio actress who scored such a success in the part when the play was first broadcast just over two years ago. At that time Grace Wyndham Goldie wrote in The Listener : ' I have heard performances to equal Miss Taylor Smith 's only from the most famous of stage stars.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
