Leslie Sarony has been a great success in almost every branch of the show business-musical comedy, films, revue, and Variety. His "I lift up my Finger and I say Tweet, Tweet" has been sung in almost every country in the world. Before Leslie Holmes joined Sarony, he was a traveller for a biscuit firm; later he became professional manager to a music publishing concern.
The partnership has been prolific. Between them the Two Leslies have concocted and sung, amongst other hits, "Wheezy Anna", "Come, Pretty One", "Ain't it grand to be blooming well dead", and "We all start whistling Mary".

At the age of twelve Albert Sandler was playing in a cinema orchestra for five shillings a week; before long he was made leader. By saving, he was able to go to the Guildhall School of Music, where he won a scholarship. After the Guildhall he studied with Wessely and then with Ronay.
He is now a violinist with a huge public. 'Sound' broadcast listeners have known him since the early days of broadcasting. At least once a month he is on the air with the Park Lane Hotel Orchestra.
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.
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.
