: 'THE BALMORALS'

An excerpt from the concert party of a Highland Division
This evening listeners are to hear another outside broadcast of a camp concert for the troops performed by the troops themselves. The Balmorals' are a concert party drawn from a Scottish Division, and despite the penetration of women into the Forces, this group is probably unique in these days in having an all-male cast.
They are very fortunate in having been assisted by many famous writers, for sketches and lyrics have come from the pens of James Bridie , Eric Linklater , the late A. G. Macdonell , Alan Melville , and G. Rowntree Harvey.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
