: ' HIGH TEA '

with Elliot Dobie (bass)
Nell Ballantyne , Gordon Jackson , John Morton , Betty Todd , and Mollie Weir in ' The McFlannels rub along'
Episode 6: A quiet evening at
Home ' by Helen W. Pryde and The Douglas Colliery Band
Conductor, Gregor J. Grant
The ' High Tea' series of programmes, designed for broadcasting at the time when Scottish towns-folk are having their own high tea -that is, ' a tea with something to it '-has made the name of the McFlannel family a household word through Scotland. The McFlannels, a mythical but very human Glasgow family, are the ' something to it ' which goes along with the brass band in the programme. Helen W. Pryde has shown a deft touch in portraying in true-to-life words and actions the sometimes pathetic but mostly humorous adventures of this vigorous family.

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
