: The Philpott File The Entertainers

A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott
2: A Right Pair of Villains
According to the notes in their programme, the Klondyke Brothers were born in the toughest, farthest-flung corner of Alaska. You have to be careful what you believe, but they are certainly the most massive and probably the most monstrous pair of entertainers on the boards. Between them they weigh 56 stones, and every ounce of it is villainous.
They live by selling hatred to the respectable, law-abiding people of the country towns of Britain. And this is one form of live entertainment that thrives in spite of television and bingo: every night the crowds fill the halls in the hope of seeing these two ugly, misshapen, merciless men take a long overdue beating.

Bella Fleace Gave a Party by EVELYN WAUGH
Bella Fleace was over 80 when she decided to give a party, the like of which had not been seen in Ireland for 25 years. The preparations were stupendous. She invited all the best people, not of course, Lady Mockstock (an upstart) nor Lady Gopdon (an American). At last all seemed ready.

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.
