Bang Goes Saxpence


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.
A Jolly Day Jaunt to
A Holiday Haunt arranged by ARTHUR BLACK and GEORGE HARVEY and conducted by MOULTRIE KELSALL
The party includes
Music will be provided by RUBY DUNCAN and BILL THOMSON at two pianos
This is an Aberdeen version of ' Doon the Watter ', though Aberdonians are so fortunately placed geographically that they do not need to take taxi, train, or boat to the holiday resort, and get there with spending a penny on the tramcar. The happy party on this occasion includes an outspoken grand-father of doubtful habits and a daughter's young man whose refainment of speech is only equalled by the nattyness of his suitings. Listeners can be sure of an amusing and varied three-quarters of an hour if they choose to join this Aberdeen family at the seaside and witness their efforts to spend sixpence like water.

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.
