: ' ON THE JOB'

The first of three talks on the work of Parish Councils in the war, by L. Ramsbottom
Never in the history of the nation has local govirnment been called upon to make such efforts and assume such responsibilities as at present. Smallest of all the local authorities are the Parish Councils which look after the interests of the small rural community, and since the war, have been faced with problems of evacuation, local defence, and other wartime measures.
Laurance Ramsbottom is Secretary of the Central Parish Councils Committee of the National Council of Social Service.

: VARIETY

From a seaside concert party in Scotland

: JOLLY ROGER'

The scene is laid in and about the town of Kingston, Jamaica, in the year 1690
BBC Theatre Chorus, BBC Theatre Orchestra, leader Tate Gilder , conducted by Reginald Burston. Adaptation and production by Desmond Davis
Jolly Roger , which was first produced in Manchester in 1933, and later at the Savoy and Lyceum Theatres in London, will be remembered as a rollicking, tuneful show, in which George Robey added yet another leaf to his laurels, for it was the first time he had appeared in any production of the operetta type. There is a close tie between this radio production and the original. That delightful singer Percy Heming will be playing the same part as he did on the stage, and Reginald Burston , who is responsible for the musical side of tonight's show, was musical director of the original production at the Savoy Theatre.

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.
