Grace Draper was originally in the chorus of Give Me a Ring at the London Hippodrome in 1933. Afterwards she joined up with a partner and put on a very successful tap-dancing act known as 'Jack and Jill'. Six months later she accepted a solo dancing engagement in Milan, where she met her present partner, Alan Shires. They made their first appearance in England at the Piccadilly Hotel in March 1935, since when they have established themselves as an outstandingly clever dancing team.
Howard Rogers has been a favourite artist of cabaret-goers for nearly twenty years. His sketch, which will be presented today, "P.C. Hoppitt's Retirement", has been shown all over South Africa, Australia, and Canada.

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.
