THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Production by BRYAN MICHIE
This skit is a peep behind the microphone and shows the trials and tribulations of a radio producer (not B.B.C.) endeavouring to make the show go over in spite of opposition from a theatrical magnate, temperamental artists; and incompetent ' Yes-men.' Let us add that it is all part of a mythical commercial broadcasting organisation.
At the head of a large cast of popular favourites "is Dorothy Carless , a singer who is to have her first big chance on the air. She has only broadcast once before, and that was when she was put into a programme earlier in the week to make sure ' microphone fright ' did not interfere with her performance in a big part tonight.
(' The Show Goes Over' will be broadcast by all Regionals, except Scottish, tomorrow night)

: A SHORT MID-WEEK SERVICE

Conducted by the Rev. W. H. ELUOTT Relayed from St. Michael's, Chester
. Square
The perennial popularity of this Mid-Week Service is, perhaps, largely due to the fact that Mr. Elliott has the gift of making religion very relevant to life. In his talk he takes the most ordinary difficulties and smooths them out.
Listeners will have not iced that since the summer vacation this broadcast has been put forward half an hour, and is now given at 10 o'clock instead of at 10.30. The reason for the change, as was announced at the time, was that
10.30 p.m. seemed too late for a great number of listeners.
In addition to the Mid-Week Service,
Mr. Elliott is to take the ordinary broadcast Sunday evening service on the Sunday before Christmas, December 23, at 8 o'clock.

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.
