: 'PROVERBS'

Another Parlour Game for Listeners
Presented by Neil Munro
In this game, as many listeners who have played it at parties will remember, one side chooses a proverb, each member of the side being allotted one word of it. The other side then put conversational questions of all kinds to each in turn, and each answer must introduce the appropriate (though sometimes it becomes an inappropriate) word. The problem of the other side is to discover the proverb from this evidence... As many proverbs contain words that are not normally used in conversation, the game becomes a sharp test of the wit and ingenuity of those who supply the answers.

: 'LET THE PEOPLE SING'

A serial version of a new novel by J. B. Priestley
Third instalment, read by Kevin Fitzgerald
In this instalment Timmy and the Professor, who are still evading the police, have the most extraordinary encounter. As the Professor remarked: Only in England could such a thing be seen. One minute it is all cheapness and dreary commerce, and the next minute it is Alice through Wonderland.' Priestley is well in his stride, and the characteristic humour and satire of this reading should be a delight to his fans.
Mid-week readings will start on Wednesday and will be given each week by that well-known broadcaster Eric Gillett. The Sunday readings will be continued by Kevin Fitzgerald.

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.

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.
