: Dudley Savage

at the organ of the Royal Cinema, Plymouth
Next Sunday Dudley Savage is going back to his home town, Penzance, to give a recital on the organ of the Ritz Cinema, with the Penzance Choral Society.
Since it was announced in the Radio Times that he is only eighteen years old, his fan-mail has doubled itself. He constantly receives letters from different parts of the Empire, especially from Cornish folk who have settled overseas, telling him that their thoughts turn to home when they hear his signature tune, the Cornish 'Floral Dance'.

: The Club of Queer Trades: Episode 3: The Awful Reason of the Vicar's Visit

by G. K. Chesterton
Adapted for broadcasting by Douglas Cleverdon
with A. Bromley-Davenport as Rev. Ellis Shorter also and Mr. Jervis, Mr. Carr, a Constable
Production by Michael Goodwin
Listeners to the two previous programmes in this series will by now be used to surprises, and The Awful Reason of the Vicar's Visit provides one as startling as its predecessors.
Members of the Club of Queer Trades are all people who follow 'unlikely' callings, and the profession dealt with this evening is one of the strangest of them all. When Gilbert Swinburne , just setting out to dinner, received a call from a 'bald-browed, white-haired, white-whiskered, old vicar of a flappy and floppy type' he little dreamed of the reason for this visit.
The predicament in which the Vicar of Chuntsey found himself, and about which he tells his host, is one of tragi-comedy at its best, as may be realised of a situation in which a respectable old clergyman finds himself forcibly dressed up as an old woman for the purpose of participating in a crime.
Needless to say, the awful reason for the vicar's visit is not all that it appears to be, as Gilbert Swinburne learns long after he has missed his dinner appointment

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.
