: SWITCH ON

A look ahead to some
BBC Further Education series for 1969-70
Introduced by Barry Turner
Producer, ANTHONY CASH
Perhaps you would like to learn a foreign language, improve your maths, or train to be an engineer. The BBC's plans for educational programmes on radio and television in 1969-70 will include these and many other subjects.
In half an hour it is only possible to give you a hint of what will be available, so the producer decided to concentrate on those educational series which are linked with correspondence courses or publications, or additional audio-visual aids, and could be used in various Further Education courses.

: THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Wednesday Show Time
Old-Time Music-Hall from the stage of the Famous City Varieties Theatre, Leeds
By arrangement with Stanley and Michael Joseph presenting
TESSIE O'SHEA
KENNY CANTOR , LESLIE SARONY
WALLY BOAG , THE RUWILLS
BRIAN ANDRO
THE TRIO CHARLY ROSS
Chairman,
LEONARD SACHS
Musical director, BERNARD HERRMANN
Produced by BARNEY COLEHAN
There has never been anyone quite like Tessie O'Shea , who makes her first appearance in The Good
Old Days. She is a natural for this show and captures the flavour of the period with a skilfully devised medley of songs.
Now in her fifties, Tessie O'Shea no longer moves the scales to seventeen stone three pounds, and has even jokingly referred to herself as Twiggy O'Shea.
She is on a strict diet, but has to make sure she does not lose too much weight or her image would be damaged.
Tessie has come a long way since she first appeared at the Bristol Hippodrome at the age of ten. Today she divides her time between Britain and America.
On Broadway in 1963 she stopped the show with her performance in Noel Coward 's The Girl Who Came to Dinner.
One critic wrote: ' She lifts the roof off Broadway.' The show won her several awards for the most outstanding performance in musicals on the Broadway stage.
Tessie's talent takes another form. In New Orleans a couple of years ago she played the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet. The Times said she was excellent in the part and continued: It was a bustling, motherly performance overflowing with humanity, and not unexpectedly Miss O'Shea handled the bawdy with vigour and enthusiasm.'

: The Wednesday Play: Bam! Pow! Zapp!

by Nigel Kneale
with Clive Revill as Walter Trapnell, Pauline Delany as May Trapnell and Robert Powell as Arkie
A sleepy south-coast town out of season. Walter Trapnell, an elderly wages clerk, is the life and soul of the local pub. Arkie, Scanlan, and Clem are three youths living in a dream world of violence, cowboys, and Batman. They enact a comic strip sequence and Walter Trapnell is very much a victim for real. They snatch his wages, knock him down, badly injure him. They are delighted - except for Arkie. He gradually becomes obsessed by Walter's recovery. He is determined, though not quite sure how, to redeem the damage he has inflicted.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
