THEATRE ORCHESTRA under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Bob and Alf Pearson , the popular syncopated singers, were bricklayers before they were discovered. It must have come as a pleasant change from building houses to play to full ones wherever they go.
Tony Capaldi , the Italian Scot, is the piano accordeon champion of Scotland, and one of the best sellers of records for the instrument he plays. He records for about five companies and plays everything from classics to jazz. He can also imitate aeroplanes and trains on his piano accordeon.
Charles Heslop is always trying to get a number over, and Ronald Simp son, plus a piano, is always there to rescue him. They have finished a short run in Hello Again at the Shaftesbury, and their act is an enormous success.
Bertha Willmott has been a favourite on the air since Savoy Hill days. She once sang to five hundred convicts, every one of them a murderer. It was an astonishing experience, some of the men were so handsome.
You all know Haver and Lee-alwavs in trouble. And out of their trouble they always manage to get a succession of laughs.
Tonight is Jack Barty 's second broadcast. He was in White Horse Inn and Casanova at the Coliseum, and is just back from Hollywood, where he has been making pictures. He is 8till making them-at Elstree ; but he is delighted to get back to the music-halls again.

: Historic Occasions-I 'TWENTY YEARS AGO'

This ambitious programme, the first of a new series dealing with historic occasions, is designed, on the twentieth anniversary of Great Britain's entry into the World War, to reconstruct the sequence of events from the time Princip fired the fatal shot in Serajevo on June 28 until the chimes of striking eleven on August 4, proclaimed that ' we were in '. The story is told by means of diplomatic despatches, telegrams, and extracts from memoirs and diaries, and has been specially compiled by Harold Temperley , and adapted for broadcasting and produced by Laurence Gilliam. Dr. Tempet y is Professor of Modern History at Cambridge, and perhaps the foremost living authority on the origins of the war. With Dr. G. P. Gooch , he is editing the British Official Documents relating to the origins of the war ; he was a member of the British Delegation to the Peace Conference, and he served during the war as Assistant Military Attache to the Servian Army.
For purposes of broadcasting, an enormous amount of condensation of the available evidence has been done. Nothing is included that has not been verified by the most rigid research. The voices of the principal actors in this world drama are heard, speaking again the advice, the thoughts, and decisions they made in that fateful month. Here, after twenty years, is the story of the march of events to the great catastrophe, wrested from the archives and broadcast for all to hear.

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.
