: IN TOWN TONIGHT

Interesting people who are
In Town Tonight interviewed by John Ellison
' Let's Go Somewhere ' with Brian Johnston
Produced by Peter Duncan
HANG it, I can't stand this any longer '.He dropped his pen and at thinking. He remembered the roar and rumble of tanks as they ploughed across Belgium and Holland, those days with the Grenadiers. He glanced at his striped trousers, black jacket, at his briefcase in the corner, snatched the telephone, and dialled WELbeck 4468.
' BBC? Stewart MacPherson, please ...
That you, Stew? Brian here. Look, old boy, I knew this would happen. Just can't be a city merchant. Anything doing? '
Brian Johnston and MacPherson had not met since one was a Guards officer, the other a war correspondent. The voice at WELbeck 4468 said, ' So you can't take it? Try O.B.s. They want guys like you.*
Brian went to S. J. de Lotbiniere, head of Outside Broadcasts, said he had been a Major in the Grenadiers, had grown coffee in Brazil, and once had the right to wear an Eton suit. ' Lobby ' was unimpressed, merely said, Another would-be broadcaster Go to Piccadilly Circus, stand there for five minutes, and write me a story.'
'I went,' says the man who now tackles any radio story. 'I saw, but I didn't write. I popped into a record-your-message shop, paid five bob, and did my piece. Nobody's breathed a word about it sincel '
' Lobby ' may have lost that record--or kept it for blackmail. He won't confess. He attached Brian to Wynford Vaughan Thomas on a Saturday Night Out, armed with a test question to use after the official broadcast. 'It was a daft question. I've forgotten what it was, but we recorded it, Lobby heard it, and said, " We'll try you-never know, you might make a commentator inside twenty years."'
It began like that. You know the rest-
O.B.s for radio and cricket commentaries for television ... racing along on a fire-engine ... and driving a hansom and winding a barrel-organ ... Once more Brian Johnston goes somewhere In Town Tonight.

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.
