Britain's most versatile man of the theatre rarely broadcasts, but when he does so it is an occasion. As everybody knows, he has recently followed up his many stage successes with his first film, In Which We Serve ; but this has not prevented his play Blithe Spirit from achieving London's longest current run. He has also just ended an eight weeks' season of two plays, Present Laughter and This Happy Breed, in each of which he played the. leading part.
In tonight's broadcast he will sing some of his old songs and will introduce a new one in his wittiest vein, of great topical interest. He will be introduced to listeners by Tom Ronald , and Billy Ternent will conduct the orchestra that accompanies him.

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.
