A mid-morning mixture
Jack Train, Dick Francis, Denny Dennis, Helen Clare, Billy Ternent and his Sweet Rhythm Orchestra.
The music of this show will be in 'sweet rhythm' style, but there will be plenty of laughs in it. First of all, Jack Train, who of imitations over the air since war broke out, will perform a new five-minute act. He will play the part of about half-a-dozen cheapjacks auctioneer! at a village fete.
More laughs will come from Dick Francis , who will deliver a military monologue which has nothing to do with the present war. He will be Major Bagshaw the Big Shot from Bagshot, and will give some of his experiences in India ... 'I was crawling on my belly in the jungle near Delhi, in search of elephant spoor!'

: '1 LIKE TO REMEMBER....'

G. H. Jones
G. H. Jones has been working with and for miners all his life, either below ground or above it. He knows the miner intimately in many .Itounties, and in more than one country. His keenest memories, like his interests, lie with the miners to whom he belongs —a class of men among whom endurance, kindness, and courage often amounting to heroic self-sacrifice are the unmarked commonplace of daily life more than in most fields of work.

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.
