with Ronald Frankau, Comedian, Michaelson, Cartoonist, Paddy Brown, Diseuse and The June Dancers.
In addition to the June Dancers, an unusual dancing act, Michaelson, a cartoonist whom viewers have seen before, and Paddy Brown, a diseuse who has been very successful in West-End non-stop revue, this evening's cabaret is noteworthy for the appearance of Ronald Frankau.
The son of Frank Danby and the younger brother of Gilbert Frankau, the novelists, Ronald Frankau left Eton and slowly but determinedly drifted on to the stage. He made his first appearance in the chorus of A Country Girl at Daly's. His first real success was with his own concert party, called 'The Cabaret Kittens'. Since December 1934, his double act on the air with Tommy Handley as Murgatroyd and Winterbottom has been one of the highlights of broadcast Variety. On the stage and in cabaret Ronald Frankau is now one of the biggest attractions. He is entertaining both as a singer and as a raconteur.

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.
