: Laundry—1

' Ironing '
DAISY PAIN
As the person who has had practical experience of a thing must know more about it than all the theorists in the world, three talks on laundry work by Mrs. Daisy Pain , who worked in, as well as supervised, her husband's laundry, should be welcome. She is an experienced broadcaster (having given many talks in ' At Home Today ') as well as an experienced laundress. This morning she is to talk on ironing; on September 8 she will talk on indoor drying ; and on September 15 on how to put your summer clothes away.

THE BBC VARIETY ORCHESTRA conducted by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
With the exception of Billie Houston and the Albert Sandier Trio , both as well known as they are popular on the air, this programme consists of stars who are to make their debut on the air tonight-in this country at any rate.
Billy Maloney made his name in Australia for being one of the best chorus singers ever heard.
Doris Collett sings a sophisticated type of song and has a sparkling personality. Chic York and Rose King have been topping the bill both at the Palladium and at the' Holborn, and are stars in America.
Billie Houston is to bring to the microphone another sister, Shirley Houston-their ' kid sister ', who played the old lady in Renee's sketch, ' The Customer's Always Right' in More Damned Things, and afterwards played Renee's part in Glasgow. She has also been filming with Billie and Renee in their film Happy Days are Here Again.
The Stranger must remain something of a mystery. He has a beautiful voice and works all blacked up, wishing to remain as anonymous as A. J. Alan.

EDWARD REACH (tenor)
William Boyce (1710-1779), son of a London cabinet-maker, was a famous organist and composer of church music and editor of a collection of Cathedral Music. Boyce held a number of important posts in London, including organist at St. Michaels, Cornhill, composer to the Chapel Royal, and conductor to the Three Choirs Festival. In addition to a great deal of sacred music he wrote a fair amount for the theatre.

Constant Lambert's second ballet Pomona, completed at the end of 1926, was produced by La Nijinska at the Theatre Colon, Buenos Ayres , in 1927. The story is based on the Roman legend of Vertumnus and Pomona, but as it is a classical tale, consisting of set dances without miming 6r descriptive interludes, it can give its message as pure music perfectly well without a knowledge of the story.

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.
