: "TO BRIGHTEN THE BREAK'

Entertainment for women war-workers, devised by Ellaline Terriss with Carroll Gibbons and his Band with Anne Lenner and Eric Whitley
Guest artist, Binnie Hale
Presented by "Douglas Moodie
Binnie Hale-now appearing so successfully at the Saville Theatre in Up and DoinK-is a guest artist who would be welcome anywhere. There is nothing in the performing line she can't do. In revue she will make herself look a sight in a character part and give a perfect rendering of it, and appear a minute later looking as beautiful as any girl in a Cochran revue. The Dubarry, principal boy in pantomime, burlesque, Nippy, Nanette-she takes them all in her stride. Like her brother, Sonnie Hale , she graduated in the chorus, and behind the foot-lights learnt every trick of her art.

An anthology of prose and verse
Those taking part :
Ronald Simpson , Fred O'Donovan , Valentine Dyall , Ivan Samson , David King-Wood , Mary O'Farrell , Betty
Hardy
Production by M. H. Allen
Dr. Johnson, on having it put to him by Boswell that a man should surely battle with his mind, replied to the effect that the mind was equally suited to diversion-it could lead a man from his troubles into any variety of peace. There are troubled" minds enough today. Here is a programme that should open for them serene avenues under the guidance of the best of those poets and writers who first discovered them, from Marcus Aurelius to those of our own time.

in a Beethoven recital
Sonatina No. 2, in F
Sonata in C, Op. 53 (The Waldstein)
Solomon first appeared at Queen's
, Hall, London, at the age of eight, and before he was twelve years old he had no fewer than thirteen concertos in his repertoire and had given several recital programmes. At fifteen he very wisely made a temporary retirement so that he could devote all his time to studying. In 1921 he made his second debut in London, and from that date his success has been rapid and complete.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
