BBC Theatre Orchestra, leader Tate Gilder , conducted by Reginald Burston Produced by Gwen Williams and Desmond Davis
Rogues (not to be confused with scoundrels) appeal to us all. Something of their adventurous lives has been handed down to us in story and legend, with all the glamour added, and probably often enough little of the truth. So we have our Robin Hoods , our Claude Duvals , our Vagabond Kings, all glorious heroes, and stage and screen actors compete to play them on both sides of the Atlantic.
Stage, screen, and radio have a long ' rogues' roll of honour' of their own, and many of them, happily, have been singing rogues. Some of the rousing and roguish songs they have sung will be heard again in this programme.

: TOMMY KINSMAN

and his Band in ' Rhythm on Parade '
Tommy Kinsman was born in Liver-pool. At the age of thirteen he was working in a cinema as a page-boy, and was then promoted to cinema operator. Two thousand feet of film were burnt in an accident, so he decided to join the Mercantile Marine. During the last war he sailed regularly between England and America, and it was over there that he became interested in the new American jazz. In 1927 he formed his own dance band and he gave his first broadcast in 1935.

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.
