A relay from the Royal Mint
By permission of the Deputy Master and Controller, the Children's Hour microphones will tour the Royal Mint. This is the first occasion in the history of broadcasting that such an arrangement has been effected, and it is singularly appropriate that this visit to the Royal Mint be the starting point for the first of an interesting series of Children's Hour Outside Broadcasts.

A visit to the opening night of Charles B. Cochran 's new revue
' Follow the Sun '
Relayed from the Adelphi Theatre
Compere, JOHN WATT
A Cochran ' first-night ' is a social event; and all the world of celebrity and fashion will turn up at the Adelphi tonight to see the first performance in London of C. B. Cochran 's biggest and most spectacular revue. A broadcast of the arrival of celebrities is a unique experiment, and should prove a most entertaining one. The dialogue and sketches are by John Hastings Turner and Ronald Jeans , the music is by Arthur Schwartz (with the exception of a ballet based on a synopsis by Osbert Sitwell , for which William Walton has composed the music), the dances are arranged by Frederick Ashton and Buddy Bradley , and the settings and most of the costumes arc by Professor Ernst Stern.
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.
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

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.
