Talk for Women by MURIEL LEVY


Mr. DAVID WRAY. 'How to Strengthen Will-Power ! "


Unknown: Mr. David Wray.


In a Short Violin and Pianoforte Recital

: Top O' Me Thumb

A Play in One Act by Frederick Fenn and Richard Pryce
Presented by EDWARD P. GENN
THIS clever study of London life was first produced in 1904 by the Stage Society and afterwards by Sir George Alexander. The principal part, 'Amanda Atnick,' was created by Miss Hilda Trevelyan , who has played it with great success all over England.
The scene is laid in Mme. Didier's laundry in Soho, and the characterization of the Cockney work-girls is remarkable for its humour and pathos.
It is Saturday evening before an August Bank Holiday. Mme. Didier is ironing, Hose Jordan is making up parcels of linen, and Clem and Celeste are working in other parts of the room.

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.
