: A Recital

HAROLD SCOTT (Entertainer)
Versatile Harold Scott , of Riverside Nighte,
Cave of Harmony and broadcast non-stop variety fame, in an entertaining recital of Victorian songs, accompanying himself on the piano. Zazel, as readers of The Radio Times must know well by now, was the daring young lady shot from a cannon across the Aquarium in the late seventies; this song is by the composer of We. Don't Want to Fight, and it was originally sung by George (Champagne Charlie) Leybourn. Sarah fromde Bonnyird and / 'aven't told 'im (The Mug) were music-halt favourites in the eighties. All Round my Hat is a ' flash ' song of the late thirties, built round the Cockney tradition that willow leaves bound round the hat would keep trouble far away. The last two numbers are characteiistic burlesques by Harold Scott cf the egregious ballad.

: 'Enterprising Holidays'-III

Mr. T. H. HARRISSON : Deserted Island'
Mr. T. H. Harrisson is a young man, eager for adventure in out-of-the-way places, and a keen ornithologist. The prospect of visiting St. Kilda after that remote island had been evacuated by its sparse population appealed to him strongly. Tonight he tells how with a few friends he got to St. Kilda, what they found, and some of the queer adventures that befell them there. It is an exciting tale of a genuine experience, typical of what may easily reward the holiday-maker who has a nose for novelty and follows it. It should make good listening.

Mr. JAMES AGATE : Dame Madge Kendal '
Tonight Mr. James Agate ' presents ' perhaps the greatest, certainly the longest-lived, star of this glittering series. He has the fascinating task of passing in review Dame Madge Kendal 's progress on the English stage in the years between her first appearance in 1854 as the child Marie in The Struggle for Gold and her last as Mistress Ford at His Majesty's in 1911. This great comedy actress is a living link with the very beginnings of the) modern drama, for she is a sister of Tom Robertson , the ' father ' cf modern English comedy. Listeners will hear Dame Madge in three of Rosalindas speeches from As You Like It: she made three records recently at Broadcasting House.

: Orchestral Concert

BRITISH LIGHT MUSIC
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
This work, which had its first performance two months ago, is based on Manx folk-songs. The first, ' The Good Old Way,' is an old and typical air written mostly in the Dorian mode. The second tune, which introduces the lively section of the work, is a reel, The Manx Fiddior.' The third tune, ' Sweet Water in the Common,' relates to the old practice of summoning a jury to decide questions connected with watercourses, boundaries, etc. The fourth is a fine old hymn, ' The Harvest of the Sea,' sung by the fishermen as a song of the thanksgiving after their safe return from the fishing grounds.

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.
