: The Children's Hour

'My Programme,' by Nora Nicolls
'There are fifty-seven ways of constructing tribal lays, and every blessed one of them is right,' says Rudyard Kipling. According to the views expressed by listeners the number of ways of constructing 'The Perfect Children's Hour Programme' is infinitely greater. With the idea of imparting variety, 'My Programme' days are to be arranged in The Children's Hour from time to time. Mrs. Nicolls was at one time known to Manchester listeners because of her work there in the Children's Hour.

: ADA REEVE

(Picture on page 190.)
LADY MACHETHS and Portias may make their mark in the history of the stage, but most of us have- or had, in the days when pantomime was in its prime-a particular affection for the Principal Boy. Miss Ada Reeve was long the Principal Boy par excellence ; she had all the dash, verve and sparkle that the rôle demands, and, though she played many famous parts (was she not The Shop Girl and San Toy ?), she will be long remembered as Aladdin and Jack. Her admirers will l'e glad to welcome her first appearance before the microphone.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
