Norman Hackforth abandoned early aspirations to a medical career in favour of music. At the age of twenty he was playing the piano in a night club, which led to engagements in cabaret and on the stage. Later, he played Vincent Howard in Bitter Siceet and appeared in Ballyhoo at the Cambridge Theatre. As a composer, he published a suite of pianoforte pieces, 'Streets'. His first song hit, 'Heaven for Two', was written in collaboration with Harry Pepper, of White Coons fame. In addition, he has written songs for several West-End productions, including The Co-optimists, The Slum's the Thing, Charlot's Masquerade, and After Dinner. Radio listeners will recall his music for Seven Days' Sunshine and the monthly revues.

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.
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.
