: The Camera and the Song

The Songs of The Fivepenny Piece Come to Your Tea
Memories - some tears and some laughing. When he comes to tea, it's almost as good as an engagement ring for a Lancashire lass. Lancashire? Yes, but Yorkshire's dun the road, Cheshire across the street and Derbyshire at the bottom of the road.
It was one of the best ways of fusing music and television we have seen. It gave a new dimension to the pop world.

: Hospital

The last in a series of nine documentary films about the Bolton Area Health Authority. Geriatrics
The story of Belle and Alfred Metcalfe , both in their 80s, and both in the same hospital. He is recovering from an operation: she has severe arthritis in the knees.
Both yearn for their discharge from the male and female geriatric wards, so that they can be together again in their small terrace house in Bolton. But discharge depends on the result of tests monitored by the physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers - tests to determine if they can cope on their own, for example make a cup of tea, or go to the lavatory unaided. The film ends when a decision has been reached, and the Metcalfes are told whether they will have to live apart in geriatric wards, or be reunited in their own home.

But fame can be a mixed blessing. For Bernard Walke , these Christmas mummings were the prelude to the sacking of St Hilary. Narrator FRANK GILLARD

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.
