"Auspicium memoris ævi"

Gillie Potter, whose radio voice has not penetrated the stately homes of England for over two years, will be heard and seen this afternoon, his first appearance at Alexandra Palace. It is not his television debut, for he was one of the four artists who travelled to Crystal Palace to perform in the experimental studio.
Mr. Potter has travelled a great deal abroad, generally at times of internal dissension - he was in China during the Civil War of 1912 and in Spain as recently as a month ago - is to give a travel talk entitled "With Spaghetti to Italy".

: George Scott-Wood and his Six Swingers

About two years ago George Scott-Wood wanted to prove that a small 'hot' British band could be a commercial success. The result of the experiment viewers will see and hear tonight-a combination which has broadcast frequently and which is popular with both 'swing' enthusiasts and lovers of the 'sweet' variety.

Entertainer at the Piano
Leslie Hutchinson - he is just 'Hutch' to his fans - was originally intended for the medical profession. Now he is a great cabaret attraction. He is a brilliant pianist and has a voice to match. One of his hobbies is riding, but his greatest joy, he says, is to listen to a debate in the House of Commons.

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.
