: Hughie Green and his Gang

in Music - Songs and Laughs with Ella Wilson, Joyce Cannon, Wendy Elliott, Kitty Machree, Connie Wood, Queenie Ransley, Toots Williams, Vera Underwood, Helen Dore, Audrey Samson, Ken Wood, Stuart Woolstone, Willie Mars, Jack Hopkinson, Kenneth Rive, Joan Tate
Jack Hart and his Band and Hughie Green
Hughie Green, boy star of so many entertainment worlds, was only fifteen last February, but he was known already to listeners throughout the country and even across the seas. He first broadcast in "In Town Tonight" in January last year. He broadcast with some future members of his gang in April, 1934, and introduced the now famous gang over the air the following month.
Hughie's own impressions of stage, screen, and radio stars have been his hobby since he was quite small, and he soon developed into a very able compere. He has a flair for spotting talent; he writes and produces all his own broadcast shows; is a disciplinarian at rehearsals, but finds his gang as keen as mustard.
Hughie Green and his Gang have appeared at all the principal Variety halls in London and the provinces and have been playing together continuously (and broadcasting) for over a year. Since the middle of June he has been making his first big picture after playing minor parts in several films. He is playing the name part in the Basil Dean production "Mr. Midshipman Easy", in which he is assisted by his godfather, Mr. Harry Tate (minus moustache).

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JULIAN CLIFFORD
ANTHONY PINI (violoncello)
Snowmaiden was Rimsky-Korsakov's third opera and one of his most characteristic compositions, (i) The opera opens with an orchestral prelude suggesting the gradual awakening of nature from her winter sleep. (2) The ' Dance of the Birds' describes the birds' greeting of the spring. (3) The action of the human part of this spring fairy-tale passes in the quaint kingdom of Berendeys, a people who live in fantastically shaped houses painted in many colours and are ruled by a kindly, but despotic, Tsar. Rimsky-Korsakov here describes a procession of the Tsar and his court. (4) Awaiting dawn in the Holy Wood at the spring solstice, the Tsar orders his buffoons to amuse him.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
