: Ted Ray with Music-Hall Memories

and an armful of records
Produced by PETER CHISWELL who writes:
One thing about Ted Ray - you always get value for money. When we suggested that he should do a record programme featuring stars of Music-Hall and Variety, back came a list of at least 50 top-liners he'd actually worked with himself. ' Of course this isn'all,' said Ted. ' There was Gertie Gitana who gave me my first chance in review, and Gerald Gardiner , and ...' ' The programme is barely half an hour,' we said. 'Lead me to the record library,' said Ted. We offered a mild word of caution: ' some of the discs are old 78s and they don'bounce.' Ted grinned. If I know anything,' he said, ' vour lot will be asking for another of these programmes and you'll need the other sides. So I shan'bust 'em ... '

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
