The Bright Rhythm Boys
The Aristocrat of Comedians
Professional Idiot, encouraged by Billie Carlyle
The Famous Scots Comedian
The Popular Tenor
(Trained by Miss Rosalind Wade )
THE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
The presence of Claude Dampier in a programme is a guarantee of laughter. He has toured the world with his act, and he had a big name in the Dominions before he came into prominence over here.
Rich and Silva return to the air for the first time since their broadcast in Variety in June. Vic Oliver is an American comedian on his fourth visit here, and just off home again. Whilst Will Fyffe will present the ever-popular brand of Scottish humour. He has just finished a film, Rolling Home, and has received a big offer to make one in Hollywood.
Trevor Watkins has not broadcast in a Variety programme for about two years. He has been playing in Frederica and The Dubarry (on tour with Binnie Hale ). This summer he scored a big hit with an act that he wrote himself, called ' Schubert Fantasy'.

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.
