: MATINEE

Presented by Dorothy Hogben with The Matineurs and The Tea Time Five at the pianos,
Dorothy Hogben and Cecil Woods
Arrangements by Dorothy Hogben
This is the seventh and last of the Matinee programmes whicji Dorothy Hogben has been presenting. Since they started listeners have been treated on each occasion to a gay mélange of musical items in which light and syncopated music have been predominant. Most of the Matineurs (male-voice singers) and Matinettes (women singers) who have been appearing in alternate programmes, are young people fairly new to the microphone, and Dorothy Hogben considers the two combinations more than ordinarily successful.
Dorothy Hogben herself has been associated with broadcasting almost since it began. She was a deputy accompanist in the Savoy Hill days, and, in her own words, has broadcast in almost every type of musical programme, from Ridgeway Parades to Foundations of Music.

: ICE HOCKEY

Wembley All-Stars v.
Harringay All-Stars
A commentary on the final period of the match by Stewart MacPherson from the Empire Pool and Sports Arena , Wembley
While no issues are at stake in this big exhibition game, it is certain to provide ice hockey of the very highest order. Both Wembley and Harringay have two teams respectively. In the case of the first, these are the Wembley Monarchs and the Wembley Lions, and in that of the second, the Harringay Racers and the Harringay Greyhounds. The all-star teams that meet tonight will consist of picked players from all four teams.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
