A fifteen-minute dance cavalcade compiled and produced by Ernest Longstaffe with Betty Huntley-Wright and John Rorke
Ruby Taylor and Francis Keyte at the two pianos
Introduced by Stuard Hibberd
This little Longstaffe feature introduces a cavalcade of dances, from the patterned lancers to the mimed Chestnut Tree, from the rollicking barn dance and polka to the modem-day Lambeth Walk. The quarter-hour into which it has to be compressed will indeed be a full one, and a decidedly attractive one with Stuart Hibberd compering and even making a third singer to John Rorke and Betty Huntley-Wright .

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
