: 'THE NEW ZEALANDERS ENTERTAIN'

Part of a Camp Concert performed and presented by members of the New Zealand contingent from ' Somewhere in England '
Listeners have already heard ' Private Smith ' entertaining, ' Gunner Smith ' doing likewise, and also ' Aircraftman Smith '. So, with the Naval show that Vivian Ellis presented from Plymouth, a fairly representative selection of the talents possessed by our men in the Forces has already been broadcast. And listeners know what great stuff it is.
Today they are to hear a sample supplied by the New Zealand forces already in this country and on their way to France. And these men of the ' two islands ' are not likely to be behind in raising laughs.
On February 9 it will be the turn of the Canadian forces already over here. And at a later date the Australian forces-known to everyone as Aussies-will show their paces on the stage.

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.

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.
