: ' Coster Carnival'

Even for those who are not Londoners, August Bank Holiday seems to conjure up 'Appy 'Ampstead, 'Arry and 'Arriet, ' Pearlies ' and ' Costers '. On this day of Carnival they make for the Heath from an early hour, and always have done. The crowds, and ' nil the fun of the fair ' are still to be found there, even if some of the picturesqueness is gone. In the old days the women wore huge ostrich ' fevvers ' in their hats, and the men came out in suits covered with pearl buttons. And how they enjoyed themselves in the care-free atmosphere of a bright day on Hampstead Heath ! Changing hats and dancing ; cokernut shies, swings, and roundabouts. No class barriers, and all strangers pals. Dancing and love-making in the beautiful setting of the Heath, then home, happy and tired, pockets empty of cash. What matter ? They would be filled again in time for another Bank Holiday.
All costers are lovable people, with an abounding sense of humour, perhaps a little broad at times. They were immortalised on the music-halls by Marie Lloyd , Gus Elen , Alec Hurley , Florrie Forde , Albert Chevalier , Charles Pond , and a host of others.
Cyril Nash got to know the Cockney and his cousin, the coster, when his work in his younger days took him to the East End of London and the Docks. This little play of his, combined with typical Variety turns, is designed to show through the characters of 'Arry and 'Arriet, the quick change from tears and fears to gaiety and laughter, the friendliness, and the devotion of 'Arry and 'Arriet, each to the other, at various stages in their thirty-four years of married life. It was first produced on August Bank Holiday two years ago, and Ray Wallace , Eric Anderson , Edwin Ellis , and Cyril Nash himself were in the original cast.

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.

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.
