c Holiday Harmony'


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 selection of ihose songs which have, through the years, brightened our beaches and pulverised our piers
Presented by FRANCIS WORSLEY with the assistance of John RORKE ELSIE EAVES
(West Regional Programme
' Holiday Harmony ' is a new series, and may be considered as a summer-time version of ' Hurdy Gurdy '. It is a song show; but the songs will be chosen chiefly from the repertoire of concert-parties of the present and (more particularly) the past. This gives the choice of nearly every song that has ever been written, for it is well-known that concert-parties ' work' all kinds of numbers.
Suitable selections from the band-stand will be heard in the distance, and all the sounds incidental to a seaside holiday. The first programme in this series was given on June 19.

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.
