followed by COCHRAN SHOWS
Records of songs from shows produced by Charles B. Cochran
Probably no West - End showman since the last war has been responsible for introducing more stars or more song-hits to the public than C. B. Cochran. The term ' Cochran show ' is its own cachet, and there have been Cochran shows almost beyond the counting.
This programme will recall some of the best-known Cochran numbers, and introduce some of the artists who helped to make them famous. Cochran's recorded voice will introduce a selection from shows such as As You Were, On With the Dance, Blackbirds, and This Year of Grace. Among the stars who will be heard are Ivy St. Helier, Jessie Matthews ,
Gertrude Lawrence , and Georges Metaxa.

The story adapted for broadcasting by Marianne Helweg
Produced by John Cheatle
This is an adaptation of an 'Our Bill ' story, namely that of Master Martin Judson 's black pony, Polly, and how she beat the Slopton black horse at the races.
For the past two years Slopton had been defeated and they were more than ever resolved that this year should see a change of fortune. Their new black horse was a wonderful jumper, but there was something very queer about him, something which was eventually discovered by Joe Allen. After that everything was easy.

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.

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.
