: ODDS AND ENDS

by Hugh Ross Williamson
3—' Who was Little Boy Blue?'
Certain nursery-rhyme characters can be identified without any reasonable doubt. For instance, the little girl with a little curt right in the middle of her forehead was Edith Longfellow , the daughter of the poet Henry Longfellow ; and the brave old Duke of York who had ten thousand men was King George Ill 's son, Frederick. But Little Boy Blue? According to one authority he' was a drunken friar, but according to Hugh Ross Williamson he was someone quite else.

: TOM LEHRER

Songs and a commentary
Tom Lehrer has something new to offer in the way of American satire. As he himself puts it, ' what he likes to do most of all is to take some of the popular song forms that we all know and love and sort of kick them when they are down.' The result is highly entertaining and often surprising.
Programme arranged by D. G. Bridson (The recorded broadcast of August 12 in the Third Programme)

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.
