Questions of the moment put by members of the audience are discussed spontaneously by A. G. Street
Graham Hutton
George Darling , M.P.
Alfred Edwards
Travelling Question-Master,
Freddy Grisewood
From the Capitol Cinema, St. Austell
Produced by Nicholas Crocker
A. G. Street , novelist and farmer, and Graham Hutton , economist, have both been frequent members of the Any Questions? teams.
George Darling is the Member of Parliament (Labour) for the Hillsborough Division of Sheffield. A former railway worker, he started work at the age of fourteen, and became a national figure in the Labour Youth Movement. In 1930 he was in charge of the Research Department of the C.W.S. At the outbreak of war he joined the BBC reporting team and was the Industrial Correspondent of the Corporation until 1948.
Alfred Edwards , born in Middlesbrough, also entered industry as a boy. He is now director of an old-established iron-works and is connected with many other enterprises. He was formerly Member of Parliament (Labour) for East Middlesbrough, but owing to his opposition to the Iron and Steel Act he was expelled from the Labour Party and later joined the Conservative Party. He contested Middlesbrough East as a Conservative at the last election, and was defeated.

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.
