Produced by Michael North
We begin this week's edition with memories of one memorable record-breaking run at the Empire Theatre, and close it with others of an even more successful production which drew the playgoers to His Majesty's Theatre for five years. The first was 'The Lilac Domino' (whose star was Clara Butterworth, who married the composer of ' The Rebel Maid'), the second 'Chu Chin Chow,' which holds the London stage record for a continuous run of 2,238 performances. Both pieces brimmed over with easy-to-remember melodies and both made theatrical history. 'The Lilac Domino,' for instance, broke away from the Empire's tradition as home of ballet. For the first time tribute is paid to Nat D. Ayer's contribution to 'Nights of Gladness' in the theatre - with songs from his delightful musical play, 'Baby Bunting,' a 1919 memory of the Shaftesbury Theatre: and we strike a contemporary note with popular numbers from Loewe's 'Brigadoon.' G.P.

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.
