JANET JOYE (The Inimitable Imitatrix)
CLAPHAM and DWYER (Another Spot of Bother)
THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Under the direction of S. KNEALE KELLEY
Tonight's bill offers an interesting opportunity for comparison of home-bred and trans-Atlantic radio variety entertainment. No two regular broadcasting teams arc better fitted in their different ways to represent native taste than Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam and Clapham and Dwyer; their reputations and versatility have increased with the growth of the listening audience. Bill and Elsa Newell are, of course, well-known and well-liked over hero, both on the air and on the halls; tonight they make a welcome reappearance in the programmes on their return from a visit to their own country. Joseph Wagstaffe is broadcasting for the second time here: he is a singer of syncopated songs, and a very popular broadcaster in America. Bert Copley is uncompromisingly British in style and approach, and Janet Joye, with her imitations of famous film stars, unites the two styles represented in tonight's bill.

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.
