: An Evening at Sea

Tonight, by courtesy of the Cunard Company, we invite you to spend an evening on the S.S. Samaria.
Imagine that the ship is on her return voyage from New York, nearing the English Coast. In the First Class Lounge the last night at sea is being celebrated by a Concert—the ORCHESTRA will play, MAIRE OWEN and GEORGE JEFFCOCK will sing songs of the sea, and SYDNEY MAHER will give us two groups of rollicking chanties.
And up on the bridge the Captain and Officers of the Watch see one by one the familiar lights flash into view as the good ship makes the Channel.
At 10 o'clock we shall bid farewell to our fellow-passengers and reach London in time for the WEATHER FORECAST and NEWS, to spend the rest of the evening there.


Singer: Maire Owen
Singer: George Jeffcock
Musician: Sydney Maher

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.
