: The Story of Light Entertainment

8/8. Variety. Before the television age, the music halls and vaudeville theatres may have placed singers and comedians at the top of the bill, but it was the magicians, ventriloquists, tumblers, jugglers, acrobats and dance acts that had audiences enthralled. Initially, the small screen embraced this kind of entertainment, with stars such as magician David Nixon commanding large audiences, but by the mid-1980s, almost all of these skills had disappeared from our screens. The 21st century, however, has seen a variety revival, albeit in a modernised format, and a new generation of talent shows and magicians such as David Blaine have given the genre a new lift. Featuring interviews with Paul Daniels , Simon Cowell , Bruce Forsyth and Jimmy Tarbuck.

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.
