Tommy Handley, Greta Gynt
When Mayor Handley decides to invest the town's rates in a theatre, the residents and councillors of 'Foaming at the Mouth' are decidedly apprehensive. Not without reason since Tommy has been 'sold a pup'. A desperate situation is saved only by one of the most chaotic theatrical benefits in showbusiness history and an unexpected windfall.
Handley and his team of regulars helped keep Britain going during the war and post-war years despite bombs, rationing and the like....

Boy: I think I'm confused.
Girl- Man is never confused, only lost in his surroundings.
Years of living with 75-year-old, antique-dealing theatrical costumiers and holiday makers, drunk for a day in the shadow of an oriental pavilion, have taken their toll on the Brighton production panel that made this programme.
They perform pieces based on events from everyday life with their own peculiar perspective.

: Worlds Apart

The last of five films about ways of life in different parts of the world. Muria
The Muria live in a relatively isolated area of central India. Their way of life differs from the general Indian pattern in many respects.
One important difference is the independence of spirit encouraged in Muria girls and boys. They sleep separately from their parents in the ' ghotul a dormitory and meeting house for the young. As members of the ghotul, their dancing and singing display Muria culture at its most splendid. But their marriages are arranged by their parents, and at marriage the young must leave the carefree life of the ghotul. Sometimes they rebel against their fate-in fact, their parents half expect them to. Narrator SNEH GUPTA

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.
