: 'MEET THE FAMILY'

A farce with music by the Melluish
Brothers
Cast :
Jan Berenska and his Orchestra
Scene: The lounge of Major Single-tore's country house
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
This merry farce by the Melluish Brothers, whose Fifth Form of St. Pontefract's was published in the Radio Times before it became a winner on the air, was broadcast in 1938 and again last year. It concerns the untimely meeting of two choleric middle-aged men whose son and daughter have fallen in love. Ructions in the drawing-room, plots in the servants' hall, typical Melluish songs and humour-go to make up a first-rate show

: BRITAIN AND ITS MUSIC

The Looe Fishermen
Conducted by Harold Mutton
Commentary by Bert Middleton
Produced by Reginald Redman and Douglas Cleveroon
The Looe Fishermen began by singing for their own pleasure on the quayside during the evenings ; but ,under their enthusiastic conductor, Harold Mutton , they have become one of the finest choirs in the West of England. They have the sea not only in their blood but in their voices too-whether they are singing sea-shanties, part-songs, old fo'c'sle ballads, or even modem music-hall successes.

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.
