Some people bathe in February and like it, some just bathe, and a few wait for the warmer weather. To whatever category a viewer belongs, however, this film showing swimming instruction to a group of bathing girls will be entertaining, and, to the person who is keen on improving his swimming next summer, educational.
This is a travel film - with a difference. First of all, the location is America's capital, Washington. Secondly, viewers will see a screen within a screen, for the film features that amusing couple, the Easy Aces, sitting in a cinema, complete with humorous commentary. One of the Easy Aces is a girl, the other a man. The girl is eager and curious, with a gift for asking questions that would try the patience of anyone other than her partner.
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.
