Musical director Graham Maynard Director Pauline Harris

Take a Pinch of...
2.15pm R4
Rommi Smith's play is a tightly written drama about a black woman, Josephine, who makes a disturbing discovery after her mother's death: her birth father is a white, racist comedian coming to the end of a populist but notorious career (his "jokes" will make you cringe). Her mother was a cabaret singer and is voiced in sexy, bluesy tones by the fabulous soul and R'n'B diva Ruby Turner. Josephine's white grandmother ensures her vile son gets his comeuppance at a public dinner. If you hadn't already guessed, the moral of this tale is that "Blood no matter, loving does." Jane Anderson

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.
