: 'PLEASURE ON PARADE'

Presented by Frank A. Terry with Phil Strickland , George Baines , Anne Veme , Mary Genn , James O'Neill , Edna Green , Len Astor ,
John Barr , Claud Branston
In the old days Frank A. Terry was with Catlin's Pierrots, making people laugh at Colwyn Bay and Scar-borough. The last war came and saw Terry in the Army. He won corporal's stripes, qualified as a P.T. instructor, and, with another corporal, won a El prize for singing ' When Paderewski Plays' on Clarence Pier at Southsea.
Demobilised, Frank Terry returned to Catlin's Pierrots, started on his own with a show called ' The Optimists ', formed his own concert party, ' The Super-Optimists' in 1922, and played the summer at Colwyn Bay. Nine years later he was lessee of the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, and first gave to the public his concert party which has won fame as ' Pleasure on Parade '.

: BEETHOVEN

String Quartet in E flat, Op. 127 played by the Griller String Quartet -Sidney Griller (violin), Jack O'Brien (violin), Philip Burton
(viola), Colin Hampton (cello)
Beethoven's Quartet in E flat, Op. 127, was commissioned by Prince
Galitzin-to whom it is dedicated-in 1822. But Beethoven was entirely occupied with his Ninth Symphony and was unable to begin work on the quartet until 1824, while staying among the pine woods of Baden.
' In it', says Vincent d'Indy, 'we find the crowning expression of that love of nature of which he gave such wonderful evidence in the course of his career.'
It is in four movements, all of which are built on elaborate lines. Particularly noteworthy is the second movement, Adagio ma non troppo, which consists of a theme and five variations.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
