: Danger! Men at Work!: Episode One: Spring-Cleaning

A New Crazy Series
Devised and produced by Max Kester and Anthony Hall
"Poor Mrs. Ponsonby! Whenever she needs a job doing, she rings up an employment agency, and - Poor Mrs. Ponsonby!"

Listeners who enjoyed the characteristically crazy series of Max Kester and Anthony Hall will welcome this first broadcast of a new one. "Danger! - Men at Work!" will carry on for eight weeks. The broadcasts will centre round Mrs. Ponsonby, a wealthy widow, humourless, gullible, and ready to be shocked and outraged by everything that happens to her. Whenever anything goes wrong in the home she rings up an employment agency, and round come Van and Allan to put things right.
These two are a famous music-hall combination, who it is claimed are as funny off the stage as on. Doris Nichols, who plays Mrs. Ponsonby, is a well-known broadcaster from West, Midland, and North Regions. Jacques Brown, who plays Nikolas Ridikoulos, the 'helpful' passer-by, played the part of the tourist in all the seventeen "Alpine Hut" broadcasts. He also appeared in "Cuban Cabaret" and in the "Legionnaires".

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.
