Twelfth Edition
Devised and Produced by MAX KESTER and BRYAN MICHIE
Tonight listeners are to hear the twelfth edition of this popular concert party which has been flourishing on the air for fifteen months. As Brian Lawrence for the moment is claimed by the films, a newcomer is to make his debut in the person of Hindle Edgar , son of Marriott Edgar , well known to concert parties in the North of England. Hindle Edgar was in the Douglas Fairbanks film Don Juan , and this is his first broadcast. He is primarily a light comedian, and should make an excellent foil for Claude Gardner.
Erne Atherton is to do another of her
' Lady Booming - Harde - Booming ' monologues; this time this dictatorial wife of the village squire should be at her best at a Rally of the Girl Guides.
There is to be a new ensemble' There is a Serpent among us ', words and music by Ronald Hill , who is also responsible for a concert waltz for Marjery Wyn. Then Wilfrid Thomas , who is an Australian, is to sing a Maori song.
The Air-do-Wells will broadcast again in the Regional programme tomorrow at 6.30 '

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.
