The company that is to present this programme was formed about a year ago. It is entirely self-supporting, without resources of any kind other than an abundance of creative ability. Helga Burgess, who is Irish, founded the company, and for this television show she has written a character sketch of a Dublin flower-woman, 'Sweet Violets'. Victoria Kingsley, the mask-maker, sings Spanish songs to guitar accompaniment; Elinor Shan is a talented impressionist; and Archie Harradine sings folk songs.

: Starlight: Steve Geray and Magda Kun

These two brilliant Hungarian artists - they are husband and wife-made their first appearance together in London to play at the Duke of York's in 1934. They have endeared themselves more and more to English theatre-goers and cinema-goers. In West-End cabarets their act has been a star attraction.

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.

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.
