: 'HEY, LISTEN!'

A musical comedy by Henrik Ege , with lyrics by James Dyrenforth and music by Kenneth Leslie-Smith and The cast also includes: Jack Train , Maurice Denham , Horace Percival , and Hugh Morton The BBC Revue Chorus and the Dance Orchestra conducted by Billy
Production by Ronald Waldman
When an American undergraduate, George Massalink , who runs the football team but doesn't know a note of music, undertakes to impersonate his elder brother, Elmer Massalink , an internationally famous jazz composer, to save him from being mobbed on a trip to Europe, simply because the young man wants to see Europe, one may expect all sorts of trouble and awkward moments. When George, impersonating Elmer, meets a girl as captivating as Mary on the boat, one may expect laughter, adventure, and romance. Such is the situation to be worked out in the first new radio musical comedy to be broadcast since the war.

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.
