In Harmonious Humour
With BRYAN SEYMOURE at the Piano
Dark Subjects
Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
JOHN OLIVERE and Morey Wicks formed a partnership as recently as last October, and have already been a success in variety, cabaret, concerts, and on the air.
Muriel George started in ' The
Follies ', and was the original singer of 'My Moon'. She was also the original Ilka in Night Bird in England. She sang ' somewhere in France ' during the War, and charmed not only Tommies. For one day while she was singing in a big army hut a bird flew in at one of the windows to listen, and a rabbit came out from under the stage and did the same. This is her first appearance as a solo act in front of the microphone.
A young man going from job to job till he finds one that suits him may gather no moss, but he gathers what is better-experience. Donald Peers ran away from school, travelled the country with a squad of journeyman painters, sailed to the Persian Gulf as a mess-room steward on a British tanker, got tired of the sea, and engaged in dock work at Lowestoft. There a concert party engaged him, and changed the tenor of his life.
Billy Bennett , who is Mose, has appeared in four Command Performances. He appeared with Alexander in 1931, and by himself in 1926, last year, and again this year.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
