: ' OUR MISS RIGNOLD'

Pat ('Well, I declare') in her. own programme with the Jigtimers, under the direction of Billy Ternent. Guest artist, C. Denier Warren. Script by Henrik Ege. Presented by Henry Reed
The first programme under this title was broadcast at the beginning of July, and tonight Pat Rignold gets another chance to exercise the ' dumb and scatty type of humour which characterises her as a comedienne.
Pat, who is a sister of Hugo Rignold , first appeared on the air as one of a vocal trio in Canada. , A few years ago she came to this country on a short visit to her brother, met Kay Cavendish , and became, with Kay and Dorothy Carless , one of the Cavendish Three. She has remained here ever since. In addition to her work with the Cavendish Three, Pat appeared a number of times in television, and has played all kinds of radio parts. Many listeners will remember her in the Jimmy Dyrenforth series, Blue Murder.

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.
