: 'COMIC CUTS'

Bits and pieces from the life and laugh series of Flanagan and Allen, written by Howard Thomas
Illustrated by Flanagan and Allen recordings
Presented by Leslie Perowne
Bud Flanagan and Chesney Allen , of Crazy Gang and ' Oi! ' fame, first met as soldiers in 1917 in that unhealthy spot, Poperinghe. or ' Pop ' as it was called, in the last war. In due course they were demobilised, and each went his way. History records that Flanagan, a black-faced comic, received an offer to join the late Florrie Forde in one of her touring shows, and, on arriving to sign the contract, discovered that the ' dude ' man was no other than Chesney Allen. When they left her revues to become a Variety act, it seemed that no theatre wanted to book them. They became book-makers. A Variety agent spotted their talent on a racecourse, and booked the bookies for a week at the Argyle, Birkenhead. George Black in particular saw that they never looked back.

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
