: 'JUST JUDY'

with Judy Shirley and Dick Francis. Script by Henrik Ege. At the piano, Ivor Dennis. Produced by Eric Fawcett
This is the first of a new fortnightly series which will give ample scope to the talents of Judy Shirley , that versatile star of ' Monday Night at Seven ' and many subsequent radio shows. In these programmes Judy, an extremely sophisticated young business woman, goes to live with her uncle, a benevolent and not over-practical old gentleman. Each wishes to ' protect ' the other, a desire that should give rise to all kinds of amusing predicaments.

: ' POEMS FROM THE FORCES'

Second selection of poetry written by men serving with the fighting Forces in the present war
Any doubts that people may have had at the beginning of the war as to the cultural interests of the modern soldier have been amply dispelled during the past two years. The fighting man of today, in fact, is just as likely to be efficient with the violin as he is with the Bren gun.
On November 6 last year, a brief selection of poetry by members of the Forces was read by Joseph Macleod , Frank Phillips , and Frederick Allen. This programme attracted a good deal of attention, so it was decided to give tonight a second selection of poetic effort by men in uniform.
Just as .much versatility will be revealed as on the previous occasion. at 10.0

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.
