THE PROGRAMME this evening is memorable for the fact that Henry Hall is to top the bill. This is his first appearance in Variety, apart from Olympia, where his success was so great that the actual record taken of his act showed three minutes and five seconds of applause after he had made his speech. He is to appear this evening as a grand finale to his second year with the B.B.C.
And what a programme! Layton and Johnstone make a welcome reappearance after a three month's absence. Scott and Whaley back again. Frank Coleman with his silver voice, and Julian Rose with his Hebrew stories.
Old friends with new entertainment.
The Eight Step Sisters, one of them a singer now. And last, but not least, Tessie O'Shea , who has nine years' experience on the stage, though she is not yet twenty-one.

: ' Seven Days' Hard' The Rev. H. R. L.SHEPPARD,C.H.,D.D.

NO ONE can possibly look back on a week of more varied interests than ' Dick ' Sheppard, as he is known to thousands, for he might well be called the world's godfather. Nobody yet turned to him for counsel and sympathy and help without effect. His human side is as characteristic as his amazing courage in fighting constant sickness in the last ten years.
It is well known that he was vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields from 1919 to 1927, for he made it the best-known church in England. It is not so well known that he was one of the very first ministers of religion to see what broadcasting might mean to the Church. He was a prophet in his own generation, and really set the tone of broadcast services.
He is interested in simple things and simple people; when he had to give up St. Martin-in-the-Fields he found it ' no fun to chuck all the things one cares for.' That is the man who is to say something tonight about his thoughts and emotions, his personal reactions to the week just over.

: A John Ansell Programme THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
Overture to an Irish Comedy Danses Miniatures de Ballet Romance, Her Love Letter Intermezzo, Laurette Suite Pastorale
1. When Hawthorns bloom; 2. Poppies and Cornflowers ; 3. The Autumn Moon; 4. Holly and Mistletoe
Ballet Suite, The Shoe
I. The Sabot; 2. The Ballet Shoe; 3. The Court Shoe; 4. The Sandal; 5. The Brogue
IT is scarcely necessary to remind attentive listeners that John Ansell is numbered among those early broadcasters who attained popularity in the first year and have retained it ever since. Besides having conducted a great deal before the microphone in the early days, London theatre audiences know that he is a familiar figure in the rostrum at many of the West End theatres, notably the Winter Gardens Theatre in the days when George Grossmith and Leslie Henson were delighting London. Besides conducting, however, Ansell is one of the best and most successful of light music composers. Several times in recent years a complete programme of his works has been broadcast.

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.
