A Magazine Programme of General and Topical Interest.
Last month the six Albertina Rasch girls, who are additional attractions in both editions of "Picture Page" today, landed at Plymouth from the United States, where they had been dancing at the St. Regis Hotel in New York. All of them are beautiful, and the troupe is one of the most highly trained in the world.

A Demonstration of Practical Dress Designing on a living model by Peter Mercer.
When Peter Mercer gave a demonstration at Alexandra Palace on February 17 viewers will remember that he draped clothes around a living model. This method of design is very unusual, and on this occasion he will do much the same thing with possibly an additional interest in that he will actually cut the material in front of the camera.
Mercer is a very well-known authority on dress. He studied at the Slade School and has worked in the fashion world in Paris for some time, recently at the Paris Institute of Dress Designers.
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.
