Being another incident in the musical activities of Miss Hetty Wiffin and her friends by David Kean
Owing to the inclement November weather and her troublesome bronchitis, Miss WifTin has been obliged to cancel previous rehearsals at her house, but as this entertainment is for a neighbouring parish, she feels it incumbent upon her to hear what will be performed, since the menace of Mr. Percy Chapman still persists.
Consequently the final rehearsal prior to the concert on the next evening is being held at her residence at Clifton, and the following are expected to attend:
Percy Chapman
Ada Chapman
Albert Bassom
Maud Bassom
Cuthbert Mitchell and Miss Turnbull
Played by George Holloway , Madge Thomas , Kenneth Ellis , Thea Wells , Mervyn Saunders , Dennis Anderson , and Winifred Davey with Dorothy Holloway as ' Miss Hetty Wiffin '
Produced by Patrick Beech

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.
