Judy Clarke , at twenty, is ' unattached, with no commitments.' Recently she has been seeking out members of the younger and the older generations to learn from their personal experience what it is that can make or mar courtship and marriage.
Among those whom she has interviewed are: A marriage guidance counsellor The head of a Marriage Bureau
A parson
A newspaper advice columnist
A distinguished Divorce Court Q.C.
A doctor and some of those who ' for better or worse ' are courting, engaged, newly-wed, bringing up a family, or looking back across many years to the first steps they took in search of a happy marriage

: NIGHTS OF GLADNESS

The George Grossmith Story
Written and narrated by Gordon Glover
Singers: Betty Huntley-Wright
Billie Baker , Dudley Rolph
Robert Vernon
BBC Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Concert Orchestra
(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Charles Mackerras
Produced by John Tylee
The story of George Grossmith is that of the actor-manager, equally successful in both these branches of the theatre. He set the fashion as the leading musical-comedy actor of his day. Before World War I he had made a name for himself in such shows as The Orchid and Our Miss Gibbs; and then in management with Edward Laurillard presented -amongst others- Tonight's the Night and A Night Out. Later on came the great successes at the Winter Garden-Solly and The Cabaret Girl both being tremendous hits. 'G.G.,' as he was known to all his friends, was a great man. The stage and the general public acknowledged him as a great impresario and his name will always live as somebody who loved and breathed ' theatre ' wherever he went. His daughter, Rosa Grossmith , will recall memories of her father during the programme.

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.
