: Music While You Work

to records of the American Legion Band playing Sousa marches
Sousa, the American composer, was to the march what Strauss was to the waltz, and consequently he justly earned the title of the World's March King. He had a genius for infusing into his marches a vitality of melody and rhythm that never fails to arouse the feeling of exuberant action in those who hear them; so there could hardly be a more suitable programme for 'Music While You Work'.

3.30 News commentary.
3.40 Battlefronts.

: 'THE RECORD GOES ROUND AND AROUND'

Fifteen minutes of swing with Kay Cavendish
Classical pianist and crooner, Kay Cavendish was once one of the Radio Three. Later she organised the Cavendish Three, who distinguished themselves as the singing secretaries in ' ITMA ', and have now become regular favourites with listeners, putting over such original features as ' Hits and Misses ', which was broadcast again on Monday. Versatility is her outstanding characteristic. She has appeared as pianist at Queen's Hall ; she has played championship tennis and lacrosse. She first announced for television just before the war, and began doing ordinary announcing in May of last year. Born in Hong Kong, by the way, her real name is Kathleen Murray.

: 'QUIET PLEASE!'

Almost a riot
The first of a new series of programmes with Forsythe, Seamon, and Farrell
Still in a tangle
Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day
In the land where good gags go
Helen Hill and this week
Tommy Handley
Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Billy Ternent
Script by Harry Alan Towers
Produced by Tom Ronald
Here is the first of a new series of radio shows taking their title from the fact that the performance begins with the announcer saying: ' Quiet, Please! ' which he has to bawl in order to be heard above the general commotion and the signature tune. In fact, everything is quite crazy. With such popular broadcasters as Forsythe, Seamon, and Farrell, Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day, and Helen Hill, and Tommy Handley as this week's star visitor, this show should be an overwhelming success. It seems to be anything but ' Quiet, Please! ' but no doubt that is all part of the fun.

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.
