An Every-day Drama in Sound
Coastguard Station ... Boat Train ...
Ocean Liner.... Night Express ... Airport.... Thames Embankment.... North Road ... Ambulance ... London Docks
To most listeners a gale warning is little more than an interruption of the broadcast programme, but to thousands of workers it is a danger signal. This broadcast sets out the contrast and points it with actual ' sound-shots ' of the men and machines that carry on essential services in the teeth of the gale.
Devised by GERALD Noxon
Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM

Directed by KNEALE KELLEY
Jack Payne and his band are always welcome in a Music-Hall programme, especially as they have not appeared in one since October, 1933. Listeners know the good form they are in by their broadcast a fortnight ago in 'Jack Payne 's Party'.
Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day are to give another version of harrnonylarity, written by Rupert. They first met on the Yorkshire coast where Rupert was producing a Julian Wylie show called Brighter Brid - Brid standing for Bridlington of course. Mamie Soutter comes from a big pantomime success in Mother Goose at Glasgow. She has just had a big film offer.
Talbot O'Farrell will lend an Irish charm to the programme.
Gwladys Stanley has just finished her star engagement at the Victoria Palace as Principal Boy in Rubin Hood.
In December the famous Lupino Lane introduced his son, Laurie, to a Music-Hall audience. It is significant that they are back again in a new sketch.

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.
