'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.

Lady Macbeths 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 role 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 be glad to welcome her first appearance before the microphone.

YVETTE THIS is not a Cabaret Show, nor yet a Concert
Party, nor is it a Revue proper. The principals are also the chorus, and they include four first-class vocalists, two brilliant pianists, a first-rate comedian and a popular soubrette.
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.
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.
