: Ballet Negres

Directed by Berto Pasuka in excerpts from their repertoire.
Music by the West African Rhythm Brothers, under the direction of Ambrose Campbell
At the piano, Leonard Salzedo
Introduced by Edric Connor.
Berto Pasuka, twenty six year old Jamaican dancer, has fulfilled a lifelong ambition in founding the Ballet Negres - the first Negro ballet to be seen in Europe.
He was brought up among the Maroon negroes, direct descendants of the first slaves to settle in the Caribbean area. From them he learned the native dances, and it is on these dances, so full of primitive emotion, that the Ballet Negres company have founded their repertoire.
The West African Rhythm brothers are five young men from Nigeria who provide a lively accompaniment to the dancing.

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.
