A Night at the Music-Hall


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.
Your Chairman Mr. William Scott Coomber introduces:
Mr. Arthur English - Stop the music— open the cage!
Mr. Norman George - Music hath charms
Mr. Jerry Latham - Entertains with a song
Mr. Duggie Chapman - Music-Hall's comedy personality
Miss Barbara Martin - leads you in song
and The Gentlemen of the Pit Orchestra, Conducted by Mr. Morris McLean
(Duggie Chapman is appearing as the Grand Theatre,Swansea.)

A Night at the Music-Hall
"Let's all go to the Music-Hall, Where the show is gay and bright." Those opening lines of a song everyone knows sum up the atmosphere of the programme you can hear tonight. I shall have the pleasure of introducing, for the 82nd time, your chairman, Mr. William Scott-Coomber, whose entrance will, as usual, be greeted by the friendly boos, hisses, and catcalls of our audience in the Garrick Playhouse, Altrincham.
As well as presenting established artists we shall, in the coming weeks, also be giving first broadcasts to a number of up-and-coming performers. We trust, therefore, that when you settle down for the evening you'll take heed of the sentiments expressed in the last lines of that same song: "When the busy day is done, If you want to have some fun. Let's all go to the Music-Hall," and we hope you'll be in your red plush stall at five past eight for another rumbustious forty-five minutes.

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.
