: 'NORTH SEA TRAWLERS'

A recorded feature programme
The speakers are the skippers and crews of trawlers fishing from
Scottish East Coast ports
Recorded under the direction of Alan
Melville
Since the outbreak of war the men who man the North Sea fishing fleets have carried out their ceaseless work under constant danger of attack from U-boat and bomber.
The BBC has visited the East
Scottish ports of Aberdeen and Granton, collecting the first-hand experiences of men who have actually been under fire or in danger from U-boats. You will also hear what the trawler-man's wife has to say about things.
Another scene between a fishmonger and a housewife, discussing the price of ' caller herrin' ', will point the moral that the dependants of the men who go to sea are now even more justified Jn calling fish ' lives o' men '.

: ' RHAPSODY IN BLACK '—1

Music in ebony from Harlem to
Savannah with Elizabeth Welch , Frisco, Evelyn Dove , Malmaison, the Georgia Crackers, the BBC Revue Orchestra, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Script by the compere, James Dyren forth. Produced by Roy Speer
Elizabeth Welch by the warm colour of her voice has endeared herself to listeners. Born in New York City, she was singing at nine years old. She sang in a church choir, a glee club, and a quartet, then found her way to the theatre. She met Caleb Porter ; met him again in Paris, and he said: ' I've a song for you.' She sang ' Solomon ' at the Bœufsur-le-Tok and then at Chez Florence. Then C. B. Cochran engaged her for Nymph Errant at the Duke of York's Theatre, London, and she never looked back. She won radio fame in ' Soft Lights and Sweet Music '.
Evelyn Dove , London-born and as lovely a coloured singer as ever broadcast, was a student at the Royal Academy of Music, studying singing and music. Then she went abroad. She has performed in no fewer than nineteen countries, and made a great hit in cabaret at Connie's Inn, New York. She was a radio favourite in the States. Two years ago she came to England to win radio fame over here.
Frisco was the name given to
Joscelyn Bingham , also a coloured artist, when he drew crowds wherever he appeared in San Francisco. He came to Europe and added to his fame. not only as an artist but as a club proprietor. ' Frisco's ', both in Paris and London, became famous. He last appeared on the stage in Erik Charell 's production of The Merrv Widow in Berlin before the days when Hitler was to take everything merry from that city.

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.
