: Television Dancing Club

The new Television Dancing Club opens on Tuesday, and it will be 'evening dress only'. With the experience of more than two hundred dancing lessons behind him, Victor Silvester comes to television with his orchestra for the first time.

He will be introducing something quite new in teaching methods. In what he describes as the 'magic way to ballroom dancing' viewers will have to learn only one main step, which can apparently be danced 'in many different patterns'.

With Victor Silvester and his Ballroom Orchestra including a dancing lesson and demonstration.


Presenter/bandleader: Victor Silvester
Musicians: Victor Silvester and his Ballroom Orchestra
Producer: Richard Afton

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
