From the Palace Theatre, Manchester
How does ' Itma ' work out ' on the road'? If you have not seen the version that is now touring the halls, you will have a chance to find out now, at the same time meeting once again those old and uproarious friends of earlier days of wartime broadcasting.
Once again the inimitable Tommy will head his colony of twirps interrupted as usual by the ever- persistent Funf. It made rousing listening before, and will certainly do so again.

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.
