with Judy Shirley , Dick Francis , and Dorothy Summers. Script by Henrik Ege. Ivor Dennis at the piano. Produced by Eric Fawcett
When Judy Shirley was a child, one of six sisters whose early promise has blossomed in every case into first-rate talent, a frequent caller at the house was a comedian whom they. all knew as '. Uncle Dick '. ' Uncle Dick ' was a great favourite with the children and always prophesied a theatrical career for them. Now that Judy is starring in this fortnightly series, ' Uncle Dick ' is once more part of her life. No sooner had she arrived to start the job than she recognised him in Dick Francis. She had not seen ' Uncle Dick * since the old days, and now he is playing that very part in this radio show.

' Boloni of the Big Top.' Another mammoth million-dollar epic from the Drearitone Studios. Hollywood burlesque, with records, devised and written by Roy Plomley and produced by Frederick Piffard. Cast includes John Slater , Roy Plomley , Alan Keith , and Dorothy Carless
Roy Plomley is having a busy time trying to exhaust the almost inexhaustible fund of mammoth film themes.

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.
