Wierd secret messages on the radio.

When I was a child there used to be cryptic messages on BBC Radio Four between the news and weather etc. that were weird and cryptic (as in they shouldn't have been on mainstream radio), but dull - stuff like "Mrs. Smith from Doncaster needs to contact her family in Hull".
I have been told they were used for spies to communicate - does anyone know any more about this? I think it's something like those code words
on the Tube that get announced if there's something going on.
And numbers stations of course!
