The programme arranged by Robin Whitworth and produced by John Pudney
This programme has been specially arranged for transmission to Empire listeners later this evening. It should be of interest to home listeners as well, not only on account of the material that it contains, but also as an example of one type of programme that the Midlands are able to provide for listeners in the Empire.
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.
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.
