A Floor Show.
With Frances Day, Cyril Ritchard, Anthony Tudor, Maude Lloyd, Bobbie Tranter and his Girls
The BBC Television Orchestra
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum
Frances Day's blonde beauty will once again be seen today in a bill of international stars. Like Claire Luce, she comes from America, where she appeared with the late Texas Guinan, and quickly sprang to fame as a cabaret artist. She made her first appearance on the London stage at the Hippodrome in 1932 as Molly Harper in "Out of the Bottle". Since then she has been in big West-End shows like "How Do You Do?" and "Jill Darling", in which she played the part of Jill Sonning, and several films.
Cyril Ritchard is an Australian. He first came to London in 1925 to play in the revival of "Bubbly". He is a versatile artist who can dance, sing, and act in comedy or straight parts-he was, film-goers will recall, the villain in the great Hitchcock film, "Blackmail". His many successes include Charlot's Revue, "R.S.V.P.", "Lady Luck", "So This is Love", "Love Lies", and "The Love Race".
Anthony Tudor and Maude Lloyd are two dancers of the Mercury Ballet. Viewers will remember that Maude Lloyd appeared at Alexandra Palace last November; and Anthony Tudor in January, in a programme called "Paleface" in which also figured Bobby Tranter and his Girls.

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.
