Philip Thornton and The BBC Television Orchestra

The Bryants Silent Comics
The Seven Menorcas Acrobats
(both by permission of the London Casino Restaurant and Clifford C. Fischer)
Joan Miller 'Grand Hotel, Good Morning!'
Lu Anne Meredith in Songs and Dances
The Knife-Throwing Denvers Western Speciality

All these artists have appeared before in television programmes. The Bryants go through their hobo act without saying a word, and invariably leave their audience helpless with laughter; the Seven Menorcas were one of the attractions in a cabaret bill televised on February 20; Joan Miller is in the studio every Wednesday as the switchboard girl in 'Picture Page'; Lu Anne Meredith, the famous American film star, was seen in February; and the Knife-Throwing Denvers, a hair-raising act, full of thrills, were seen last November.
This show will be presented with film shots of express trains of all nations, the captions being displayed on railway signals.

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.
