Mr. M' Culloch feels that he is not a bit like the popular conception of a funny man. He admits to being of a sad and solemn countenance and repeatedly mistaken for the man who plays the flute. He does not play cards or even golf; has never been shipwrecked, attacked by bandits, or mobbed by radio fans. He receives few letters of appreciation from his listeners-he considers himself lucky if he gets one, and then more likelv than not it is a warning that he is not so funny as he used to be. He was not bom in Glasgow, he affirms, but in Paisley, which he considers one of the finest towns in the west of Scotland.
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.
