: Yours, Always, Vera

The second day of Christmas with Vera Lynn
That hackneyed old phrase 'ever-popular' gets used fairly indiscriminately in the world of show business - but surely for Vera Lynn it is completely justified, to have been the Forces Sweetheart in the 1940s, and to be a much-loved star, with her own television show, in 1969 seems qualification enough. This afternoon she sings - just for you - songs which she made (and which have also helped to make her) famous, and introduces favourite entertainers from theatre, cabaret, and television: Rolf Harris
Derek Nimmo Morgan-James with the RADIO SHOW BAND conductor MALCOLM LOCKYER Script by GENE CROWLEY
Special material, MYLES RUDGE Produced by TRAFFORD WHITELOCK
(Derek Nimmo is in ' Charlie Girl ' at the Adelphi Theatre. London)

Friday Night is Music Night enjoys an international listening public. When the show visited Holland and Austria earlier this year many of the audience in the halls turned out to be regular listeners by radio. This week, the programme visits Belfast's Ulster Hall, and the audience will no doubt give a very warm welcome to Maureen Tyson and Patrick McGuigan , and to the choruses-all very much at home in Belfast. Changing roles this week Is William Davies , who usually displays his skill at the piano. He takes up the conductor's baton when the orchestra and band strike up the signature tune, ' Colonel Bogey.'

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.
