Birmingham
The Four U.S.A. Girls

Goody Two Shoes, which opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre on December 24, is the biggest and most spectacular pantomime that Emile Littler has yet produced. He is responsible for the book and took every rehearsal. The company is a hundred strong, and every scene is delightful, from 'The Village of Merry-Go-Round ' to ' Robin's Palace of Crystal '. Midland listeners can take particular pride in the fact that, though the cast of this pantomime is studded with names that are known everywhere, the entire production has been ' made in Birmingham '.

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.
