The Western Brothers - they call themselves brothers because they are cousins - say their ancestors came from Devon. For years they have behaved like bounders with little respect for anything, in particular for Empire Builders and the huntin', shootin', and fishin' fraternity. White and Old School Ties, including their own colours, egg, green, and egg, have received their special attention. Both are monocled and gravely bored. Kenneth is the plumper of the two; George, the pianist, has what he would claim to be a handsome leanness. They met for the first time in 1925 when George was a pianist with 'The Roosters' and Kenneth a lyric-writer. To appease sensitive people who may object to their satire, Kenneth has explained that a cad is not necessarily a cad, but can mean a tavern-lounger, an idle fellow, or a vagabond.
Alex Moore and Pat Kilpatrick will give viewers another demonstration of steps and style.
In addition to demonstrating the 'Swing Step', Alex Moore and Pat Kilpatrick will teach the basic steps of the foxtrot. This dance, Alex Moore says, is not the so-called foxtrot one sees in crowded restaurants, but a beautiful flowing dance that is seen only in the popular dance halls, where dancing is regarded as an indoor sport.
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.
