The Company, urged on by the Comedian, give cause for a severe reprimand from the Revue Director, but the Comedian has the last word in "Any Old Night." Next we find the Juvenile Lead is lost, and our Soprano finds him eventually and says " I'll Tell the World," after which, they both steal softly away. Our Character Lady is next accosted by the Comedian, and she goes off into fits of unseemly laughter ; the reason for this is explained by the Comedian in " Oxford Trousers." We then overhear something about the past of our Comedienne and Juvenile, Lead in " When You and I Were Seventeen. and this scene is brought to a close with an altercation between the Revue Director and Comedian.
Interlude : " Oh. Flo ! "
This opens tearfully, but our Juvenile
Lead, whose motto is " Ready, Aye, Ready," gives good advice in " Smile Through Your Tears," which is accepted by our Comedienne, and they both disappear for a quiet smoke ; after which our Soubrette and her friends tell us that her " Sister Hasn't Got a Chance."
The quiet smoke ended, the Juvenile Lead returns, and in soliloquy sings " I Never Knew How Much I Loved You. " This is followed by " Proposing," and the Company conclude the scene with " Way Down Home."
Interlude : " Tell-Tale Eyes."
The Comedian is again found accosting strangers, and this time the Soubrette and he discuss " Gardens," which is appropriately followed by our Soprano's invitation to " Come 'Along with Me to Flowerland " ; everyone having accepted the invitation, we find our Comedienne chatting pleasantly with " Farmer Jack of Devonshire." Next we are introduced to a domestic episode in " Cross-Word Puzzles," and to bring this scene to a fitting close we give a little exhibition of "Acting."
Interlude : "A Windy Day in March."-
Opens with the Comedian again accosting someone. Thistime it is the Revut Director, and they both join in giving " Some Duet," which is rudely interrupted by the arrival of a person referred to by the Comedian as " The Sheik." This latter gentleman, assisted by his Staff, sings of his "Oriental Love Dreams," and then passes on. The Comedian next accuses the Soubrette of being a vamp, but she explains what a real vamp is like in " Sob Sister Sadie." The finale of this scene takes the form of an introduction to our " Tourist Agency."

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.
