The real name of Jane Carr, one of the original 'White Coons', is Rita Brunstrom. Her father was a Swede who was born in England. She got her first big chance in London when she was engaged to understudy Marion Harris in Jack Pot - at the Prince of Wales Theatre, and did remarkably well. It was then that she adopted her professional name of Jane Carr. Now she is a star of radio, films, and the theatre.

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

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.
