A serial in six parts by ALISTAIR BELL: Part 1

In the whole range of fact and fiction there is no character who satisfies this need with more romantic exuberance than Robin Hood. This new serial, written specially for television, tells once more, with a few original variations, the story of his exciting life and adventures.

: The Friendly Invasion

Part 2: From Jazz to Swing
The second of three Omnibus films about the transatlantic take-over of our popular song and dance.
Spell it Jass, Jas, Jaz, or Jazz-nothing can spoil a Jass band.
So ran the promotion material for the first record ever to sell a million copies: 'Livery Stable Blues,' by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band.
In 1919, the band crossed the Atlantic and took Britain by storm. British imitations were soon stalking the country.
Then came the process of anglicisation. An English style of modern ballroom dancing was refined from its American antecedents. Radio turned our dance-band leaders into national heroes. A British song factory on American lines was built up around the Charing Cross Road.
But the rise of the Hollywood musical made things tough for British composers: America could now dump its songs and dances in the same film can.
By the late 30s the Americans had thundered into their swing era. Would Britain follow suit? Those filmed in America:
Eubie Blake , Irving Caesar Harry Warren
Those filmed in England:
Tolchard Evans , Victor Silvester
From the archives come AMBROSE, DUKE ELLINGTON, GRACIE FIELDS, ROY FOX , HENRY HALL , JACK HYLTON , AL JOLSON, RUBY KEELER, JACK PAYNE , HARRY ROY , PAUL WHITEMAN and many more.

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.

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.
