THE MAGYAR ORCHESTRA
Conducted by WALFORD HYDEN
(Leaders, ENDRE BALOGH and BERNARD REILLIE )
Gay matter for a May Day evening! The Four
Musketeers, assisted by Mabel Pearl , have not been long in this country, but they will enchant lovers of syncopated harmony by their gay, brisk style. Laughter holding both its sides is inevitable when Charles Peurose and Partner take the air; their records sell in millions and make even Zulus laugh. For relief there are the languishing strains on mandoline and banjo of Mario de Pietro , who smiles all the time he plays. Rough stuff comes from the versatile Mrs. Pullpleasure directing a ' ladies orchestra.' Listeners will welcome, too, charming Phyllis Monkman in her first solo appearance in radio variety; she has for support her old Co-optimist comrade, Davy Burnaby , who has cantered rapidly into the very front rank of radio comperes.

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.
