A Duologue by Vera Beringer

Gertrude Mullins
The Hon. Arthur Cunningham

Scene: A Seat in a London Park.
Mind Picture: A gentleman of Mayfair and a young Cockney girl of Camberwel! are sitting on a seat in the park, waiting for their respective lovers. They become engaged in conversation, in which each derides the opposite sex.
Finally, they read in the newspaper of a collision between a motor-van and a car, which were being driven by their absent lovers.
Both forget their sex championship, and praise the unfortunate lovers, and, feeling the community of misfortune, agree to go off together and visit them.

Suite, 'Myrtles of Damascus'...Woodforde-Finden

: Kitty

by Robert Higginbotham
(Originally produced August 7th, 1911.)
(Revived June 23rd, 1913.)
Lil: Enid Shaw
Sid: Dick Poett
Scene: A Public Park
Time: A Summer Evening

Mind Picture: A young Cockney takes his sweetheart for a walk in the park, and tries to make things pleasant, but the girl is in a contrary mood. After many vain attempts to humour her, he elicits the fact that her aunt has handed her a postcard which she found. It is addressed to him, requesting him "to meet Kitty, who has grown such a beauty."
This has aroused the jealous suspicion of the girl. Explanations follow. Kitty is a cat, which is being sent up from the country for her! There is a happy reconciliation, and they go off arm in arm to have an ice-cream.

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.
