John Snuggs, the Troubadour demonstrating Paper Tearing with his Partner Accordionist.
Introduced by S.E. Reynolds.

A grand name is Snuggs and the man who owns it is a grand personality. London theatre-goers-those, that is, who queue up for their seats-know him well. His 'act' consists of songs and the tearing of paper designs. At this last accomplishment he is particularly skilled. One of his specialities is the making of a row of skeletons in a few seconds.

: Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam

Jetsam (whose real name is Malcolm McEachern) joined up with Flotsam (whose real name is B.C. Hilliam) in 1926. Since then they have been a very popular act on the halls and on the air. Jetsam - his is the bass voice - is an Australian who once toured with Dame Nellie Melba, and Flotsam, a Canadian, sings, plays the piano, and writes most of the songs. Jetsam came to England from America with a big reputation and he first appeared at Queen's Hall.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
