: Sunday-Night Theatre presents: The Red Headed Blonde

by Val Guest
Adapted for television by Ada Kay
[Starring] Vera Day

The arrival of a glamorous film star at London Airport usually follows a well established pattern. Photographs, a smile, a hurried press-conference, a bouquet of flowers, and a swift drive to a hotel in a large black car. The arrival of Surrey Smith, one of Hollywood's newest singing and dancing stars, is, however, a little less orthodox, and the reception committee that is planning to greet her at her Knights-bridge apartment is caught literally bending. Nor do the shocks end there; for Surrey, a girl with something approaching a mind that is very much her own, has come over to star in a new spectacular musical called 'The Night, the Blonde, and the Music'-which is unfortunate since she is in the first place a redhead, in the second, can nQ more sing and dance than swim the Channel, and in the third, is under the impression that the musical has been re-styled as a straight play. But the world of show-business is nothing if not inventive, and the way in which these hurdles are overcome forms the background to tonight's hilarious farce R. A.

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.
