[Starring] Ivy St. Helier

This programme brings that distinguished artist, Ivy St. Helier, before the television camera for the first time. Equally brilliant as actress, singer, and composer, she has been on the stage for nearly three decades, having accompanied Seymour Hicks and Ellaline Terriss on a tour of South Africa in 1911. Theatregoers of the older generation will associate her with such famous shows as "Everybody's Doing It" and "The Model and the Man".

: Viennese Honeymoon

A revue for television written by Hans Kafka.
with Rudolf Brandt as Graf Bobbi, Brian Oulton, Lesley Burton, Helen Elton, Daphne Martin, Anne Twigg, Eugenia Triguez, Margaret Lauder, Donald Campbell, Charles Schloss
The BBC Television Orchestra
Leader, Boris Pecker
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

Hans Kafka's revue, which is devised specially for television, presents the quaint imaginary character, Graf Bobbi, on the screen for the second time. The setting of this show provides a novel and ingenious method of introducing the various artists. It is centred round a big automatic telescope to which Graf Bobbi brings a young English honeymoon couple. They then see various scenes through the telescope, and so we see the different acts of the revue.
Hans Kafka is a young Austrian novelist and radio playwright. He is also the author of a three-act play which will probably be produced in London during September, and his recent activities in England have included important work on film scenarios. He is married to a well-known Austrian actress.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
