We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
In tonight's rollicking bill old favourites are to the fore. We are already in the month of Christmas and Elsie and Doris Waters have been coming to rehearsals in magnificent fur coats given them by Gert and Daisy.
And Billy Merson has come muttering gags with a West Country flavour, for Bristol is to see him in pantomime this year.
Robert Naylor has done most things.
Oratorio singer in Yorkshire, grand opera at the Old Vie., guest artist with the Carl Rosa Opera Company, West End revue, understudy to Tauber (f,)r whom he played) at Drury Lane. Who can have more abundant musical memories ?
His present act with Sylvia Cecil as partner is a big winner. Sylvia has twice been with the Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company at the Prince's Theatre and her soprano voice is perfect for broadcasting.
Then there are Charles Higgins , in ' The Day I went to Wembley for the Cup Tie ', Ross and Sargent, just back from Hollywood, and our old friend Norman Long.

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.
