: 'Radio Mirror'

The Concert Party performing at the Pier Pavilion, Worthing, this summer, is based on a direct tie-up with radio. Radio people are in it, headed by one of the most popular comedians the microphone has produced. Leonard Henry made his first professional appearance with a concert party, and it is fitting that he should be starring in ' Radio Mirror'.
Another feature is that the Worthing
Municipal Orchestra is co-operating with the artists, whereas in so many concert parties the artists have nothing but a piano to help them. Listeners have sometimes wondered why more concert parties are not broadcast. The answer is that not many are suitable for radio. Even with this one, the programme to be relayed this evening is to be specially produced by Jack Allen for broadcasting purposes.

: Sports Talk 'How's That'?

By a Test Match Umpire
During the summer, and especially during a summer that has combined a visit of the Australian Test Team with day after day of blazing sunshine, cricket comes in for discussion by all sorts of people. First and foremost, there are the players themselves. Then there are the veterans of the game, watching from the pavilion end, and sighing for the days of W. G. Grace. And finally, there are those who stay at home and read the newspapers, thus qualifying themselves to question the competence of Selection Committees, Captains, and even Umpires.
Unfortunately, the Umpire cannot hit back, because it is part of his job to maintain a judicial impartiality which most critics seem to deny themselves. After all, if anyone is in a position to criticise a batsman or a bowler, he is ; and there are one or two other things about the art of umpiring that may be news even to the regular player.

THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY

The inclusion of Al and Bob Harvey in tonight's programme is specially, happy in view of the celebration this week of the birth of Canada. They are two of Canada's pioneer artists, and have been broadcasting every week in the Dominion for the last seven years.
Jenny Howard first broadcast three years ago, and was an instantaneous success. She started on the music-halls five years earlier, and an act she put on in London was booked for three years and a half.
Some years ago the Zanzigs were a famous throught-reading act in London. They might not have been heard of if Julian Rose had not been in America as a young man. He found them in a store at Washington telling fortunes at a shilling at time. Through an introduction he gave them, they became top-liners.

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.
