Compton Evans and Ray Monelle
(songs at the piano) and Robert Keys
(syncopating pianist)
Compton Evans ' and Ray Monelle had both worked with amateur concert parties, and when they met some two years ago the suggestion of a double act arose. Since then they have done a considerable amount of entertaining. Compton Evans was for several years in the Bristol Comedy Club, and recently has been comedian to the Bristol Amateur Operatic Society. Ray Monelle writes his own music and lyrics.
Robert Keys , the other act in this bill, is the composer of Five-Fifteen ', signature tune of the North Regional Children's Hour, and other works which are broadcast. He has broadcast many times as a soloist, and is heard with Jack Leonardi and his orchestra from Bournemouth.

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.

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