Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
HEBE HAWORTH and Dennis Redhead met at Felixstowe in a concert party, started out at the end of the season as a double turn, and have been ' He, She, and a Piano ' ever since. Hebe comes from a theatrical family, and showed it by winning a prize for singing ' She Sells Sea-Shells on the Sea-Shore ' when she was three years old.
George Buck is one of that select band who were the first to give out laughter over the air from the little studio at Marconi House. More recently he did a lot of good work with Charles Brewer in the Midlands.
In ' Order to View ' Bobbie Comber is to play a Cockney caretaker of a house to let, which will be a distinct change from the irate father in the sketch he has been playing for the last seven months.
Mario Lorenzi is the only harpist to play hot jazz ; but he is just as much at home playing a classical solo. He has played in concerts, music-halls, jazz-bands, symphony orchestras, on the air, and even appeared in television.
Leonard Henry , unique in that he comes from playing Lancelot Gobbo in The Merchant of Venice to Variety, has the incorrigible habit of re-writing his patter at the last minute. He says he always thinks of something better. He always used to walk on the stage with a black cat under his arm, but it died, and he was too fond of it to replace it, though he has several black cats at home.
' The Two Oddments ' were such a success as the Ugly Sisters at the Palace, Manchester, last Christmas, that Julian Wylie has booked them for his next year's pantomime in the West End.

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.
