Reichenberg
(Adapted by Hans W. Priwin )
This week Inspector Hornleigh's problem has been supplied by two thirteen-year-old schoolgirls, who, inspired by the Inspector's previous investigations, determined to try their hands at play-writing. Encouraged by the success of a performance of their play at a school concert, these young playwrights submitted their script to the BBC. Hans W. Priwin , the creator of Inspector Hornleigh, adapted their script for the microphone, and tonight listeners are once again to be given a chance of spotting the criminal's mistake, and later of comparing their deductions with those of Inspector Hornleigh.

5 That Certain Trio
' That Certain Trio ' has returned to Mayfair cabarets after an absence since 1930, when Ivy St. Helier first saw the possibilities in teaming Patrick Waddington , Anne de Nys , and William Walker -the latter now replaced by John Ridley. Miss St. Helier produced the original act and gave it its name.
Their first broadcast, since this act got together again, was in ' Monday at Seven ' on November 1, when they also gave a television performance. Patrick Waddington needs no introduction to listeners, as he has played in a variety of rôles since the 2LO days, and is one of the most popular of broadcasters. Anne de Nys is unmistakably French when singing in that language, while her English accent is quite ' unbroken '. John Ridley is responsible for most of the lyrics.

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.
