Northern Music-Hall: Variety


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
from The Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead

As a change from its usual broadcasts of Variety, the Argyle, Birkenhead is presenting Jimmie Hunter and his Brighton Follies in a snappy half-hour programme, It will be remembered that this popular concert party were on the air last summer in 'Shows from the Seaside'.
Tonight's company is headed by Jimmie Hunter himself. This debonair compere, brilliant raconteur, and leading light of the Follies has brought them to the Argyle for a short season. Dove Bruce, a comedian well known in Scotland, but new to English listeners, is the principal fun-maker, assisted by cheeky little Mae Wynne. There will be vocal numbers by Dia Jones, the Welsh tenor, and Frances Seymour gay Scottish airs by Jimmie Hunter's Young Ladies; accordion solos by Bobbie Watson; and last but not least, more comedy by Bill Brewer.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
