A Naughty Nautical Night
[Starring] The Valve Set Concert Party
A kind-of-a-sort-of-a Revue in Two Wriggles.

First Wriggle
Concocted by Sidney Evans.
The Skipper and his crew come aboard, hoist their slacks, sails, etc., sing a chanty or two and sail away. The crew break forth into song, then into mutiny, and hoist the Jolly Roger. The first wriggle concludes with a slight bit of bother in which they capture a ship.

Second Wriggle: Great Snakes
Book by Herbert C. Sargent.
Montague Miff fears nothing on earth save one thing only - snakes!
He has come to sea to dodge his pet aversion, but by ill-luck captures a Concert Party containing a Snake Charmer, together with her lover, the Tenor, and a chest containing a bundle of serpents. Driven overboard by the reptiles, Miff is allowed to return provided he turns over a new leaf. He agrees to reform provided that the pets are locked up. Finally the Snake Charmer weds the Tenor and Miff decides to buy a farm and live a quiet life ashore.

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.
