Before the war Jack Barker and his partner, Walsh, was one of the best-known cabaret turns in the theatrical business. At the beginning of the war Walsh returned to America, and Jack found himself partnerless and billed for an engagement at a West-End restaurant. He immediately started rehearsing Daphne, and from these strenuous rehearsals and the success of their first engagement, the team of Jack and Daphne Barker was born. Since then they have had numerous successes and have broken all records at the May Fair Hotel, where they are now starring in cabaret. Jack, in addition to his theatrical work, runs a private-car hire service. Daphne, for her part is an accomplished painter, and has just finished a portrait of Frances Day.
In the closing quarter-hour of tonight's programme, ' Quiz ', who has compered ' May We Introduce ? ' throughout its run, will himself be interviewed by Ronald Waldman. In the course of this interview he will disclose his oft-guessed-at identity.

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.
