: Starlight: The Western Brothers

Kenneth and George

This afternoon's television Starlight programme is the most caddish ever broadcast. Listeners all over the country have heard Kenneth's and George's views on The Old School Tie, and Playing the Game, and Letting the Side Down. but viewers now have an opportunity of seeing these two cousins - they are not really brothers - in the flesh.
They have appeared at almost every music-hall and cabaret in London, and it is said on excellent authority that they go to bed with their monocles on.


Comedians: The Western Brothers

: Fencing

A Demonstration of Modern Foil Fencing and 18th Century Sword Play by Madame Sybil Périgal and Maître Reginald H. Behmber.

Mme. Périgal and Maître Behmber are directors of the Salle Gravé, a well-known fencing club. This evening they will show some of the elementary movements of foil fencing in slow motion, so that the action can be followed easily by the uninitiated. Next they will speed up to the rate of the average pupil, and finally they will have a short bout.
An exhibition of eighteenth-century sword-play will follow. The swords to be used in this demonstration are genuine period weapons and were presented to Mme. Périgal when she was received as a member of the Académie d'Armes de Paris. This institution was originally founded in 1567 and flourished till the French Revolution. It was re-established in 1856.

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.
