Romance Unlimited


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 Matchmaking Medley by Dorothy Eaves.
The Shareholders include: John Rorke, Blonde and Brunette, Jack Parkin, The Station Orchestra

In the Head Office of Romance Unlimited there is always plenty to be done. Every day scores of new romances are turned out into the world-no haphazard mass-production methods are employed, but personal attention is given to each-while an enormous repair business has been built up in the way of welding broken hearts. It has been a flourishing concern since the year One, and in spite of the scepticism of the cynics, the activities of the Firm are still crowned with success. Its Managing Director, Mr. Cupid, is ever up-to-date, and we find him in his office arrayed not in the type of attire popularly associated with this gentleman, but in silk hat, morning coat, and immaculate striped trousers.

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.
