In the Head Office of Romance Unlimited there is always plenty to be done. Every day scores of new romances are turned out into the world-no haphazard mass-production methods are employed, but personal attention is given to each-while an enormous repair business has been built up in the way of welding broken hearts. It has been a flourishing concern since the year One, and in spite of the scepticism of the cynics, the activities of the Firm are still crowned with success. Its Managing Director, Mr. Cupid, is ever up-to-date, and we find him in his office arrayed not in the type of attire popularly associated with this gentleman, but in silk hat, morning coat, and immaculate striped trousers.
Members of the Firm - Mr. Cupid, Managing Director:
Members of the Firm - Miss Chance, his Confidential Clerk:

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.
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.
