: 'TROLLEY-BUS'

Devised by Douglas Young
A fast-moving laugh-vehicle not run on the usual lines with Flora Ashe
Cyril Fletcher
Nan Kenway
Douglas Young
' Trolley-Bus ' takes you all over the place, stopping-here and there-to pick up titbits of life, which it puts down at your doorstep
Musical arrangements by Murray Richards
This is the first of a new fortnightly series featuring some old friends of the air.
Nan Kenway hails from Sydney, and her first Variety venture on coming to England was to join Ronald Frankau 's ' Cabaret Kittens '. Later, when playing with Will Sey mour's ' Bubbles ' concert party at Newquay, she met Douglas Young and married him the year afterwards.
Douglas Young worked in the City, and on a newspaper, before taking up stage work. He writes everything that he and Nan Kenway do.
Flora Ashe is a fairly new comer to the microphone, but has done a great deal of concert and musical-comedy work.
Cyril Fletcher is a well-known radio entertainer and has spent the last few summers with the Fol-de-Rols.

: DARTS

A Challenge Match
F. Southerington
(Champion of the Air) v.
F. Wallis
(Champion of the Southern Counties)
A commentary on the play by Charlie Garner from the Hanbury Arms, Islington
Many listeners will remember the broadcast last November in which Fred Wallis of Pevensey, winner of last year's Neics of the World Southern Counties Individual Championship, took on all comers in a darts match of the air. He was playing on his home ' ground ' with darts commentator Charlie Garner compering his end of the Same.
A number of listeners were successful in beating Fred Wallis , and F. Southerington , of Chickerell, near Weymouth, was the player who overcame the champion by the greatest margin. Tonight Wallis and Southerington will meet under equal conditions-both away from home.

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.
