: Day After Day

A One-Woman Revue starring Frances Day supported by the BBC Theatre Chorus and the BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader, Tate Gilder)
Presented and conducted by Stanford Robinson

The title of this show should appeal to the glamorous star who is to give this one-woman revue, for Frances Day above everything has a sense of humour. It sparkles through her personality, whether she is appearing in revue or in musical comedy, in cabaret, on the screen, in sound broadcasting, or in television.
She made her name as a cabaret artist in America and her first appearance on the London stage in 1932. Next year at the Comedy she starred in How D'You Do? and at the Saville in 1934 was the hit of Jill Darling! At the same theatre' two years ago she radiated in Floodlight, but it is through her two most recent London Hippodrome shows that she will be best known to listeners. In August, 1938, she was heard with Stanley Lupino, Adele Dixon , and Ralph Reader in a broadcast from the theatre of The Fleet's Lit Up, and this March with Vic Oliver in a broadcast from the Hippodrome of Black and Blue.
In her revue tonight this fascinating blonde actress and singer will be heard in songs from her past successes, and also in songs and sketches never heard before.

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.
