: The Songwriters

The songs reflect the times. The fourth programme in this series of eight, celebrating 80 years of British popular music, harks back to the Dance Band Days, to pay tribute to Ray Noble written by TONY STAVEACRE
One of the ' forgotten men ' in the history of pop music, his name became so identified with American bands, and musicians like Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller , that his Englishness was often overlooked. In fact, he was born in Brighton in 1907 and died, in London, in April of this year.
Between 1931 and 1937 he wrote a number of elegant ballads that provided him with an income for the rest of his days, and assured him of a place in the ' evergreen' section of the popular music catalogue - songs like ' Goodnight Sweetheart', 'The Very Thought of You', 'Love is the Sweetest Thing'. ' The Touch of Your Lips', 'Cherokee', which have since been recorded by every crooner in the business, from Al Bowlly to Englebert Humperdinck. The story of Ray Noble is told, and his songs are sung, by The Songwriters' resident company: Paul Jones , Richard Denning Peter Gale , Colin Bennett Sheila White , Marti Webb

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.
