' Spy in Black Garters ' : another mammoth million-dollar epic from the Drearitone Studios. Hollywood burlesque, with records, devised and written by Roy Plomley , and produced by Frederick Piffard. Cast includes Roy Plomley , Cecile Chevreau , and Richard George
In searching through the extravaganzas of the film world, Roy Plomley has found himself faced with an almost inexhaustible supply of themes upon which to exercise his own inimitable fun. This afternoon he has picked on the figure of to- international spy as she is veen by the moguls of moviedom. This almost legendary witch with the snaky gown, the long cigarette-holder, the Russian name, and the enigmatic glance, has for long been- beloved by those who ' cod ' her. Even if she does not nowadays exist in fact, it is a happy and entertaining thought that she should continue to exist in fiction. Roy Plomley , at any rate, believes ;n this aspect of her slinky self, and is certainly the man to put her across.

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.
