: 'PASSPORT FOR MRS. WIDGEON'

Kevin Fitzgerald
Kevin Fitzgerald returns today to that light-hearted humorous type of talk with which he made his name on the air. Mrs. Widgin hides the identity of a distant cousin of his -gay and light-hearted herself, and-irresponsible.
Fitzgerald will describe in his inimitable way how she came over from Ireland and wanted to go to Trance for a holiday. The filling-in of her passport plays quite a part in the laughter of it aU.

: BEE-KEEPING IN THEPARKS'

R. Gamble and W. B. Williams
Birmingham is to be to the fore this year with the ' Grow More Honey ' movement, inasmuch as the Birmingham and District Bee-Keepers' Association has been granted a plot of ground to be used as an apiary in one of the public parks by the Birmingham City Corporation. Here the beginner may keep a hive side by side with the expert, and learn from him and from the various demonstrations and lectures that are planned how to become an expert bee-keeper himself.
W. B. Williams is secretary to the Association, and will tell Gamble and listeners all that is being done to encourage Birmingham people to collect the nectar in the district that would otherwise go to waste.

: The Creative Impulse

An adaptation by M. H. Allen of the short story by Somerset Maugham
Cast
The action takes place in Mrs. Albert Forrester's flat near the Marble Arch, and in Mrs. Bullfinch's rooms in Kennington Road
Production by M. H. Allen
This is the story of Mrs. Albert Forrester, the authoress, and of how she came to write her magnificent detective story 'The Achilles Statue'. Known in the literary world as 'the mistress of the semi-colon', Mrs. Forrester has been prolific but never a best-seller.
It is distressing for the lady when her husband, weary of doing the housekeeping and taking a back seat, has made off with her cook, Mrs. Bullfinch. But it is through her endeavours to get him back that Mrs. Forrester is able to write her great thriller.

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.
