: ' MILESTONES OF MELODY'

with Geraldo and his Concert Orchestra. Produced by David Miller
Tonight's ' Milestones of Melody ' will consist entirely of compositions by that outstanding team Rodgers and Hart, who have been responsible for song hits almost beyond counting. Do you remember ' Dancing on the Ceiling ', ' Mountain Greenery ', ' Ten Cents a Dance ', ' On Your Toes ', ' The Lady is a Tramp' These are only a few of the tunes that have proved themselves worth remembering. You will hear them, and others as well, in the programme tonight. Although much of the work of Rodgers and Hart became famous in America, this country has been the scene of some of their greatest successes, particularly such contributions to C. B. Cochran shows as One Dam Thing After Another, Evergreen, and My Heart Stood Still.

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.
