Gilbert Stacey began his musical career as solo chorister at Lichfield Cathedral, and played the organ for services there at the age of thirteen. Later he studied in Paris under d'Indy. After the last war he became musical director to John Tiller, Max Darewski, Ernest Rolls, Albert de Courville, and other leading managers, and conducted at two Royal Command performances before King George V. His sextet has broadcast regularly since its formation over four years ago.

: 'PARTNERSHIPS'

I-Scott and Whaley
The first of a new series in which well-know+n artists of the stage, music-hall, and films will entertain you and tell the story behind their successful partnerships
Presented by'C. F. Meehan
The partnership to open this series -surely one of Mike Meehan 's happiest ideas-is one of the longest and one of the happiest on the stage: a partnership that has lasted for well over thirty years. Today they have little sons much of an age, these two famous coloured comedians who make you laugh and once had to hobo because they hadn't a penny in the world.
The story of no partnership to be featured in this series can be more human than that of Harry Scott and Eddie Whaley , for it is a story of courage, pathos, comedy, and tears.

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.
