: Made in Great Britain

Exhibits from the British Industries Fair opening next week at Olympia and the White City, London, and at Birmingham.

The B.I.F. is the largest national trade fair in the world. It provides unique advertisement for British industry, and altogether it is an impressive manifestation of the industrial resources of the Empire. Held annually since 1915, it continues to grow in size and scope, and this year's show, to be held between February 15 and 26, will be a record one. The lighter industries will exhibit at Olympia and the textiles and furniture industries at the White City. In Birmingham will be shown the products of the engineering and metal industries. This will be the last year in which part of the Fair in London will be accommodated at the White City. In 1938 about half the London section will be transferred to the new exhibition building now being built at Earl's Court.

with Olive Groves, Soprano, and Felicity Andreae, Dancer.
In addition to Felicity Andreae, the well-known dancer, this evening's programme is notable for the reappearance of Olive Groves. At the age of fifteen she was busy teaching the piano. Her time was divided between studying at the Royal Academy of Music, where she afterwards gained a scholarship, and giving lessons at a Franciscan convent.
Later on she had her naturally beautiful voice trained, and was picked out in Savoy Hill days to sing in Winners. Listeners with long memories will remember that her first number was "She'd a Hole in her Stocking". Since then her success on the air and in the theatre has been continuous. Her broadcasts in "Songs from the Shows" were particularly popular. But the proudest moment of her life, she says, was when she hailed a taxi and the driver without waiting for an order, said "BBC, Miss Groves?"

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.
