The programme staged by JOHN E. SHARMAN
Don't miss the last performance this year of Britain's biggest music-hall. Even if you listened to the three previous broadcasts, you will want to hear your favourites again. If you've been so unlucky as to miss them, remember that Leslie Sarony and Leslie Holmes (The Two Leslies), Harold Ramsay, Charles Hayes, and Scott and Whaley are all making their first appearance at this public super-studio this year. And a star at Radiolympia tends to twinkle even more brightly than in the ordinary studio. The big packed audiences are so enthusiastic. Experienced actors say that the Radiolympia audiences are the most marvellous crowds they have ever played to. An American broadcasting official, hearing the applause at Radiolympia last year, remarked to a BBC colleague, 'Well, somehow I never really realised the power of radio until tonight.'
So tune in to Radiolympia and bring the exciting, indefinable atmosphere of the radio Show of Shows into your own home. In other words, if you can't go to Radiolympia in the fksh, go there in the spirit.

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.
