: Housewives' Choice

Ken Dodd introduces your request records.

If British housewives in their millions absentmindedly rush to the top drawer at that impassioned non-sequitur: 'Where's mi sheart?' - blame it on the pulling power of Ken Dodd. Each morning this week ('diddyfolk' permitting) Doddy has a date at the studio to introduce the record requests in Housewives' Choice, punctuated by his irrepressible off-beat clowning.

An audience mostly of women doesn't daunt Doddy (he once entertained 3,000 at Manchester Free Trade Hall), and he often finds that women are less inhibited than men in their sense of humour. ('Women live through their emotions; they're less analytical and often more appreciative of sub-conscious comedy.'). Liverpool-born Doddy can claim first-hand experience of meeting housewives in their homes: he used to be a door-to-door salesman selling pots and pans and had to overcome a paralysing shyness to get beyond: 'Good-morning, missus.'

He is also sentimental ('I like songs with words that mean something'), and the romantic Doddy can swiftly banish the clown through his fine baritone voice in such numbers as 'Eight by Ten' or 'Love is like a Violin' which are currently stopping his show at the London Palladium. But never serious for long ('Are donkeys here to stay?'), Doddy on his Housewives date is guaranteed to enliven those mid-morning chores.

† Produced by JOHN RICHMOND and EILEEN CULLEN
Script by Jeffrey Segal
Repeated Wednesday, 11.15 a.m.
The au-pair girl has rushed home to her mother, and Mrs. Dale and Lalage have been helping Bob with the twins. Sheila Draycott , who has been abroad for a week. returned to find Tom drinking heavily. After a bitter exchange of words he told her that he had been to the police and said that he killed Devenish. Sheila pointed out that this was impossible as she had seen Devenish alive after Tom had left him. She now believes herself to be the prime suspect.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
