'Tubby' comes on the air for the fourth time with his gramophone records to entertain and say a word specially to invalids
These programmes, which might be given a sub-title of ' Invalids' Parties ', were introduced last month. They have been warmly welcomed by hospital patients and other bed-ridden folk. Many letters asking for more have been reaching the North Regional offices at Manchester.
' Tubby', who himself has spent a considerable time on his back in a hospital bed, is a cheerful soul. Now that he is about and at work again he is passing on bright entertainment to invalids, reminding them that they are by no means forgotten —and incidentally pleasing a lot of more fortunate listeners too.
' After Midnight'
A short story by Roger Dataller , told by Wilfred Pickles
Here is another of Dataller's tales about steelworks and their workers-the story of an odd adventure that befell a lad on duty late one Saturday in a lonely weigh-office. Though Arthur Jones wrote ' nothing to report ' in his book, it was no ordinary night shift for him-nor for his mouth-organ.
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.
