SURPRISE ITEM
Friday afternoon is traditionally the time for lighter things ; here is a jolly three-quarters of an hour when the week's work is finished and the end of the term is in sight. The programme is delightful. Stuart Robertson will sing songs with rollicking choruses. Clifford Collin aon's persevering companion, 'George', has at last been allowed to give a Travel Talk of his very own, with effects. In the next sketch ' Mr. Addleshaw,' a Lancashire lad, meets ' Jean-Francois', the Breton onion seller, and you can imagine what fun there will be. Then more songs and choruses will follow, and the programme will end up with a Surprise Item which you must not miss. You can start guessing what it is. '

: Twelve Plays for Broadcasting: IX: Red Tabs

This stirring radio drama was first broadcast on October 2, 1930, and had the distinction of being the first radio play to appear in print, having been published in three instalments in The Radio Times of September 19 and 26, and October 3, 1930. Readers and listeners since that date, however, may like to know something of the theme. It is a military, but by no means a militarist, play, and concerns the dilemma of a 'temporary officer' promoted to the command of a division in an imaginary war of the future, and ordered to throw in his 10,000 men as a feint to a general offensive. Major-General Gore knows that obedience to the order means the sacrifice of his whole division, and does not believe that, even then, the general offensive will succeed. Shall he obey, or disobey? His views, those of his three brigadiers and of the divisional padre, and Gore's ultimate decision and its consequences, will absorb listeners tonight.

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.
