Leslio Crowther Is appearing in 'Let Sleeping Wives Lie ' at the Garrick Theatre. London; The Black and White Minstrel Show is appearing at the Victoria Palace. London. and at the Futurist Theatre. Scarborough
The opening sequence of the show this week has a distinctly Japanese flavour. Then the many charms of the Toppers will be very much on display in a Bathing Beauty routine. In their weekly spot the Minstrels, conducted as ever by George Mitchell , will sing the beautiful Gilbert Becaud song ' What now, my love.' They then demonstrate their ornithological interests in a series of songs about our feathered friends, and the finale presents a good old Dixie medley.

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.
