: The Laugh Parade You Know what Sailors are

Tonight's comedy film stars
Akim Tamiroff , Donald Sinden Sarah Lawson , Naunton Wayne
Having spliced just one too many mainbraces, Lieut Sylvester Green (Donald Sinden ) finds that an innocent prank has serious but hilarious repercussions as he is held captive in a Middle East country.
However, his ' captors ' turn out to be 30 beautiful girls-one of the brightest arrays of talent to grace the screen since the days of the Goldwyn Girls.
Akim Tamiroff provides a good share of the fun as the President of Agraria whose mishandling of the English language provides many delightful moments.

: The Wednesday Play: It Wasn't Me

by James Hanley
starring Frances Cuka Ronald Lacey and Derek Francis
Some people will do anything to get rid of an ageing father. George and Edna visit the sinister Mr Shafton and his son - who guarantee to solve any problem.
But their solution isn'quite what they expected and George and Edna see one another in a new and frightening light.
The shrewish Edna is played by Frances Cuka, a distinguished member of the RSC. Her recent appearances include "The Silver Tassie" and Pinter's "Silence".
Ronald Lacey has been in two recent films - "Take a Girl Like You" and "How I Won the War".
This is a new play by the novelist James Hanley whose best-known play was "Say Nothing".

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

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