: Enterprising Holidays'—V

Mr. REYNOLD BRAY :
' Buy a Reindeer'
When buying a reindeer one must be careful.
The first one Mr. Bray bought died on him, figuratively speaking, so he had to buy two more. He eventually abandoned these, too, and with a friend, pulled his sleigh across Lapland last year. Russia via Lapland is not a widely-advertised route, and enterprising holiday-makers who are curious about it will find Mr. Bray a stimulating guide.

Broadcasting's own ' cork-team ' on the air again. ' Banjo ' and ' Sambo ' are bursting with new jokes, the Banjo Team longing to play their new tunes. ' The Kentucky Minstrels ' scored a big hit last January with their first broadcast. They present a modernised entertainment that has all the vigour, humour, and melody
that made the minstrels of fifty years ago such firm' popular favourites.

Mr. JAMES AGATE : ' Miss Fay Compton'
Playgoers who saw Fay Compton in John Barrymore 's production of Hamlet at the Haymarket in 1925, say they saw the best, most beautiful Ophelia of our time. Mr. James Agate , who has probably seen more Ophelias than any other living man, may be too tactful to express an opinion. But listeners who hear Miss Compton in two famous extracts from Hamlet tonight, may be certain they are hearing the only living actress who can play Ophelia and Principal Boy in pantomime with equal success. (The extracts used were made by means of gramophone records)

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.
