Produced by Michael North
It is nearly always the stars and the show-men who steal the limelight when the great musical successes are remembered. We know the melodies, too-but somehow the names of the composers too often escape us. Thie oversight * Nights of Gladmess ' has set out to remedy. Our series has been a tribute not to the actors on the stage but to the men who wrote the tunes they made famous. This evening's chapter marks the end of a seri« whose run was literally extended ' by public demand -and even after four months a wealth of material remains untapped. Throughout the run the rule has been to share each programme between four or five composers, but in the final sixty minutes we shall hear more than a dozen songs by nine different composers, the shows ranging from * Florodora ' to ' King's Rhapsody ' and from ' Merrie England ' to ' The Glorious Days '-with Coward, Rubens, Tauber, and Monckton joining in to give good measure. 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
