: AT THE BLACK DOC '

' Mr. Wilkes at home in his own bar-parlour '
Presented by Pascoe Thornton and S. E. Reynolds
The twelfth in a series of programmes that are being broadcast weekly to the Empire
Once again it is Christmas time at The Black Dog which tonight will celebrate its second Yuletide in a characteristically festive programme, while Howard Marshall , the Wilkes's, S. E. Reynolds , and other visitors, gather around the Christmas tree.
Pascoe Thornton tells us, by the way, that in his Christmas post-bag is a gift from an Estonian lady, Baroness Helma von Voelkersam, who, by her consistent interest in the Empire productions, might be well christened ' Non-Empire Listener No. 1 '. This year she has sent to several of the Empire producers calendars designed and made by herself. Thornton is particularly proud of his which records the Baroness's conception of various At The Black Dog ' characters, scenes, and occasions.

: 'TOMBOY UNDER THE MOON'

by Norman Lowe
Characters :
Dan Forrester , a young Lancashire motor mechanic
Mrs. Forrester, his mother, proprietress of a filling-station
Tony Condello , a young Italian-
American
Fay Condello , his wife
Max Rosmann , a Londoner Eileen Maloney , a young Irish girl, visiting Blackpool
Production by Howard Rose
This is a play that tells the story of how four words, dropped idly from the lips of a young Lancashire motor mechanic encircled the world, and, incidentally, made a fortune for the people who heard them. And the words ? Simply the title of the play-Tomboy under the Moon.
It would be unfair to the author of this original radio play to describe how these words became famous, and how they set up Tony Condello and his wife Fay in luxury for the rest of their lives. You will find out all right when you hear the tale of the mysterious trio who turned up at the lonely filling station, kept by Dan Forrester and his mother, on a hot evening in 1926. Asked in for some refreshment, the three, who are on their way to Blackpool, make friends with the Forresters' foundling dog, and inquire, ' How did she arrive ? ' Dan explains that he was coming home late one moonlit night when he found her. ' It was a bright night' he says, ' and there was Tomboy under the moon ..."
That is how the words were spoken, but how they became famous it must rest with the play to tell.

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.
