Tunes made famous by Fred Astaire


Unknown: Fred Astaire


including an eye-witness account of Wolverhampton Wanderers v.
(Football League), by E. A. Eden and ' A Day's Cycling ' by W. Oakley
E. A. Eden , secretary of the Birmingham County Football Association, has done most of the broadcasts on First League football for the Midlands during the last two years.
W. Oakley is a well-known cycling journalist, who made his radio debut in 1936. He was responsible for the ' New Country ' series. He has been councillor to the C.T.C. since 1927 and was the first president of the South Staffordshire District Association. Although he has toured in Normandy, Belgium, and the Black Forest, he still declares that Shropshire retains first place in his affections.
Listeners may remember that he broadcast a talk on a day's cycling on Bank Holiday, and the talk he will give this evening will be rather similar: he will come to the microphone without a script immediately after his tour.

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.
