Oriel Ross with Michael Sayer at the Piano
The three artists appearing with Michael Sayer today, all famous stars of radio and the stage, will be particularly welcome to listeners in the North. Patrick Waddington will be remembered for his performance in Gallery Goddess ; Hermione Bad deley was heard from Manchester when playing in The Greeks had a Word for It ; and Oriel Ross was once a pantomime principal in Manchester.
Father Christmas will dip into his sack for some interesting Northern events past, present, and future

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
