: SONGS FROM THE STARS-2

Recalling the music that brought fame to:
Evelyn Laye
Elsie Randolph Jack Buchanan
The songs sung by : Joan Butler , Billie Baker
Dudley Rolph
BBC Midland Light Orchestra
(Leader, Frank Thomas )
Conducted by Harold Gray
Script written by Dick Richards
Programme introduced by Hugh Morton
Produced by John Tylee
This week the songs from the stars are taken from the shows of the 1920s. Madame Pompadour , The New Moon and a revival of The Merry Widow represent some of Evelyn Laye 's biggest successes; and in contrast, the very light and tuneful musicals such as Thai's a Good Girl, Stand Up and Sing, and Sunny provide us with a selection of melodies that were sung by Elsie Randolph and Jack Buchanan.

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.
