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.

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.
