On the Yacht Skylark:
On the Motor Cruiser Carefree:
Villagers, Yachtsmen, etc.
Conducted by JACK WILSON
The whole of the action takes place on and around the Norfolk Broads
Production by MARTYN C. WEBSTER

Three young men, on board their yacht Skylark, are busy singing and washing up tea things, when the motor cruiser Carefree bumps into their boat. In this way they are unceremoniously introduced to the Mantons and their two charming daughters. One of the young men, Dennis Drake, falls in love with one of the girls, Lorna, but the Mantons have rather snobbish ideas about men friends for their girls, so the boys pretend Dennis is a Crown Prince. This is the situation leading up to amusing developments.
The author, Charles Hatton, is a freelance journalist, living at Kingswinford, near Dudley. He wrote the radio revue Midland Masquerade, and also the short play Suicide Party, which was relayed from the Birmingham Repertory Theatre last winter.
The composer, Jack Hill, has broadcast frequently both as a straight pianist and in syncopated numbers. He is one of The Three Knaves in 'The Radioptimists'.

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.
