: Some Numbers

The poet tells us that we should all be 'as happy as kings' and gives, as his reason, that the world is 'so full of a number of things.' In his optimistic mood he overlooks 'wrong numbers' - human and telephone ones; still, the wrong numbers in this programme are only characters in a play and the musical numbers are always right.

: Some Numbers: Wrong Numbers

A Play in One Act, by Essex Dane.

The restaurant of a department store in New York at sale time is no haven of rest, for the weary shopper, but at Messrs. Altermaker's this day, a kind waitress allows a tired, nervous woman to use the table behind the screen as the superintendent is absent. While the waitress goes for the woman's order another shopper avails herself of the sanctuary.

Number One: Margaret Davies
Number Two: Dorothy Holloway
A Waitress: Dorothy Eaves

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.

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.
