: WOMAN'S HOUR

Introduced by Olive Shapley
' What's Going On ': spotlight on current affairs
' A Musician in the Balkans,' by Frederick Thurston , the clarinettist, who has lately given recitals in Yugoslavia and Bulgaria
' Words and Music,' by Alan Melville
The phrase ' Words and Music by ...' on a theatre programme usually sum up the lengthy and at times acrimonious collaboration between author and composer of a musical show. In his talk today, Alan Nielville-author of the Sweet and Low revues at the Ambassadors, and more recently A la Carte at the Savoy-will recount a few of the trials and tribulations which both author and composer have to go through before the words and music of a song are happily united.
At the moment Alan Melville seems to have turned his attention to straight plays, in which he has no one to blame but himself-he has two comedies going into production next month-but not even the horrors of collaboration have stopped him working on a new musical over which he and his long-suffering musical collaborator are at present quarrelling violently-or so he says.
' Beginners In the Kitchen : What Goes Wrong with Cake-making,' by Bee Nilson

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
