: Music Makers: Carroll Gibbons

Carroll Gibbons, as listeners to his lazy drawl must know, is an American. He was born in Massachusetts in 1903 After studying music in Boston and playing the piano with a number of American combinations, he crossed the Atlantic in the company of Joe Brannelly and Rudy Vallee to begin his long association with the Savoy Bands. In addition to his signature tune 'On the Air', he has written 'While My Pretty One Sleeps', 'Garden in the Rain', and, with Rudy Vallee, 'My Cigarette Lady'.

: Sea Stories

by Commander A. B. Campbell.

Today viewers will see as well as hear one of the most remarkable raconteurs the BBC has introduced to the public. He is a broadcaster who made his name with his first talk and he has added to his reputation with each succeeding one. Commander Campbell disdains the use of a script and talks into the microphone just as he talks to friends at his club. The result is delightful. He is a man with a distinguished war career on the sea, and altogether - he is now a publisher - his life has been an ideal one for a born talker such as he is. He has been in every part of the world, including the Arctic and Antarctic Circles, and has a happy knack of describing vividly the strange personalities and places he has seen.

: Peter Godfrey presenting Grandfather's Tricks

There are few things in the theatre world that Peter Godfrey has not done. He is thirty-seven years of age and has been a successful actor since 1915 when he appeared at Aldershot in a music-hall sketch. Afterwards he played in a great number of melodramas and in repertory, and he also appeared with a circus in Ireland. His London debut was at the Everyman Theatre in 1921 as Smith in "The Second Round". In 1925 he founded the Gate Theatre. As a producer he has handled well over three hundred plays, including "Ghosts", "The Hairy Ape", "Ten Nights in a Bar Room", "Peer Gynt", and "Murder". He played important parts in many of these productions. He is also the author of two plays and has directed two films.

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.

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