: Miss MARGOT HiRoNs : On with the Dance in Fiction '

DANCING may never have been so much the favourite occupation of all classes as it is today, but there is no recorded period of history in which it does not bulk largely amongst the diversions of the human race. In this talk Miss
Hirons will recall a few famous passages about dancing from the dramatic splendour of the Waterloo Ball in ' Vanity Fair ' to the uproarious jollity of Dingley Dell, the formal manoeuvres of Jane Austen 's heroes and heroines to the fantastic dance on Rose Macaulay’s Orphan Islands.

: . VARIETY

YVETTE DARNAC and BERNARD CLIFTON in light
French and English Songs
THE art of the films is one -that many of us flatter ourselves we understand, but really most people are astonishingly ignorant of the processes that go to the making of a moving picture. Mr. Anthony Asquith has worked in Holly-wood, the Mecca of the movie world, and he has now come back to direct pictures in England, so he has a thorough knowledge of working conditions in the studios. In this series of talks he will discuss many points that the ordinary theatre-goer is apt to overlook, though they may, without his realizing it, have a powerful effect upon his enjoyment, or otherwise, of the film.

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.
