Under the direction of Harry Tollfree from the Little Theatre, Saltbum
For the past seven years Harry Toll free has been directing the Little Theatre Cabaret at Saltburn-by-the Sea, on the Yorkshire coast, on behalf of Mrs. M. 0. Osborne, lessee of the Little Theatre there. For the fourth year in succession they are to broadcast. It is of interest to listeners that Mrs. Osborne's cousin, Joan Shadwell , soubrette and dancer, will be heard this afternoon, for Joan is the daughter of Charles Shadwell , conductor of the BBC Variety Orchestra.
Linda Love , comedian and dancer, and Ivy Esta, pianist and entertainer, have been with the company for four consecutive seasons. Cal McCord is a Canadian entertainer who specialises in cowboy acts. Walter Barker is a comedian of considerable repute.
The show is run on intimate personality lines, and the ladies' dresses are a feature. Humour, versatility, good voices all contribute to making the Little Theatre Cabaret a perennial success.

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.
