How well you know Padde by now-that poor little boy who never meant to go on the voyage at all ! You all like him because he is so lovable and always in hot water. How glad you were that he was saved when the ship caught fire and they all had to take to the boats though they had a drcadfu experience : thirst, sharks following, and at dusk a horde of bats. How relieved you were when Padde and the others at last reached iand !
Well, today you will be laughing with him again-yes, and laughing at him. For he loses his breeches. Who do you think took them while he was bathing? You'll never guess.
Conductor, G. WYNDHAM WILLIAMS

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.
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.
