One of the most popular light-Comedy and musical-comedy actresses of the English stage, Joyce Barbour first appeared before the footlights at the age of eight. This was in Birmingham, her home town, when she made her début, as so many famous actresses have done, as a pantomime fairy. Before she was fourteen, she was appearing at the music-halls, being billed as ' Little Joyce Barbour '. In the ' Gaiety ' production of Tonight's The Night she was the youngost of the chorus girls, and was called ' the baby of the Gaiety '.
Joyce never had any formal stage training, nor is there a theatrical tradition in her family. She just took to it like a duck to water, and has played in scores of revues, musical comedies, and straight plays, as well as broadcasting in many BBC productions.
Joyce Barbour is married to producer Richard Bird , in whose production of George and Margaret she played for two years. She and her husband are now living in a Surrey house which has been loaned to them by the American playwright Robert Sherwood-their own flat is an enemy-action casualty. Apart from broadcasting, Joyce Barbour is at present doing film work for the Ministry of Information.

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.
