: Never Been Kissed in the Same Place Twice: 1: I Was a Good Little Girl

A love story in six parts set against the background of the music-hall by Allan Prior

The turn of the century saw the height of music-hall and artists like Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno were already becoming legends. Lower down the bill came the hopefuls, struggling for recognition. Harry Viner was one of these, a comic from the back streets of Stepney. One night Clara, the attractive daughter of a successful theatre owner, comes to see his act - and for the Kosher King of Komedy and 'the girl up in the gallery', nothing would ever be the same again.

: Odyssey: Italiani in Scozzia

The vast majority of Italians in Scotland today are descended from 5.000 people who emigrated there between 1890 and 1914. Those who settled in the west of Scotland came mainly from the area of Tuscany around the town of Barga, while the smaller Edinburgh community originated in the Abruzzl hills between
Rome and Naples.
Almost all of the Scots Italians have been
Involved in the catering business: indeed they initiated a revolution in Scottish social and eating habits by opening cafés and introducing the delicacy of ice-cream.
Scots Italians recall their lives, and their recollections are blended with the music of their homeland.

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.
