in A Programme of Music, Drama, and Sketches under the direction of Joseph Greenspun
The Orchestra conducted by Harold Lowe
Esta Stein and her Yiddish Chauve-Souris Company, under the direction of Joseph Greenspun , made their radio debut in April, 1932, from Glasgow, and have been on the air from one station or another many times since then. Their programmes are distinctive and original, and their repertoire includes poems and sketches by great Yiddish writers. Although some of the items are given in Yiddish, all essential speech is given in English, so that broadcasts are clear to everyone.
Tonight's programme is to open with two typical Yiddish numbers, then Joseph Greenspun is to give a dramatic episode on his own, ' Seder Night '. Esta Stein will follow with an act introducing several songs, the programme ending with two more numbers in Yiddish. Once again a feature of the broadcast will be the singing of the Jewish Male Choir, conducted by I. R. Berman.

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.
