: P.C. SMITH ENTERTAINS'

assisted by P.C. Jack Hulbert and P.C. Carl Carlisle
A Variety show performed and presented by a Metropolitan Police Division, from a theatre in the South
The Police at play could always be relied upon to produce entertaining talent. The Force is now more in a position to do so than ever, since many Special and War Reserve policemen are stage and band performers of renown. Such a one is Claude Bampton , for instance, well known in the dance-band world, who has written this show's signature tune, ' Off The Beat '. He has also composed a rousing song, ' Chantez les Vs'. What is described as a ' beefy police chorus' lends lungs to the show.

Guest experts :
Monsignor Ronald Knox
A. G. Street
Question-master, Donald McCullough in a recorded programme presented by Douglas Cleverdon and Howard Thomas
There should be stimulating and diverting answers from Monsignor Ronald Knox , for he is one of the outstanding intellects and one of the greatest wits of the present day. A. G. Street will be in his element if some question on farming crops up. As everyone knows, he is as much at home with things of the land as is Commander Campbell with things-especially serpents-of the sea.

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

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 programmes, online etc.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
