Hughie Green and his Gang


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 Music - Songs and Laughs with Ella Wilson, Joyce Cannon, Wendy Elliott, Kitty Machree, Connie Wood, Queenie Ransley, Toots Williams, Vera Underwood, Helen Dore, Audrey Samson, Ken Wood, Stuart Woolstone, Willie Mars, Jack Hopkinson, Kenneth Rive, Joan Tate
Jack Hart and his Band and Hughie Green
Hughie Green, boy star of so many entertainment worlds, was only fifteen last February, but he was known already to listeners throughout the country and even across the seas. He first broadcast in "In Town Tonight" in January last year. He broadcast with some future members of his gang in April, 1934, and introduced the now famous gang over the air the following month.
Hughie's own impressions of stage, screen, and radio stars have been his hobby since he was quite small, and he soon developed into a very able compere. He has a flair for spotting talent; he writes and produces all his own broadcast shows; is a disciplinarian at rehearsals, but finds his gang as keen as mustard.
Hughie Green and his Gang have appeared at all the principal Variety halls in London and the provinces and have been playing together continuously (and broadcasting) for over a year. Since the middle of June he has been making his first big picture after playing minor parts in several films. He is playing the name part in the Basil Dean production "Mr. Midshipman Easy", in which he is assisted by his godfather, Mr. Harry Tate (minus moustache).

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.
