Coming Down, by a Professional
Parachutist-AL HARRIS
Five years ago Al Harris gave up his life of a commercial pilot in America to take up parachuting. At a display in New York he made his first drop. He was pretty nervous-and that wasn't helped by the expressions of pity from the crowd. As the 'plane climbed the sky he thought he was leaving the world for good. At a height of 2,000 feet he climbed on to the wing of the 'plane ... and jumped. In his talk this evening he will describe what happened.
He has made some hundreds of 'jumps ' since then, and had many thrilling adventures in the course of them. It's an exciting game parachuting with a gale blowing.
And yet a parachute may mean safety. At the last moment Amy Johnson decided to take one on her record flight to Australia. One evening on the Western Front during the war an enemy 'plane skimmed over a line of observation balloons, from end to end, and set fire to them one after the other. Not a single British life was lost, thanks to parachutes.

The B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Directed by KNEALE KELLEY
Mrs. J-ack Hylton started her band as a bet. More than two years ago Jack bet her a car she couldn't do anything of the kind. He came back from tour and she met him with her band. He had to pay up. Last year she toured 25,000 miles, playing on both sides of the Channel.
Mario de Pietro, as facile on the mandoline as on the banjo, is to give samples of his playing on both. George Doonan , at the age of five, sang ' You've Got a Long Way to Go '. He stayed the course.
The ' Trix Sisters ' was probably the first of the sister acts to become famous. Josephine is American and Helen English ; so their act has an international flavour.
Harry Tate has been in pantomime at Brighton and should be in good vein, for he is never happier than by the sea.
Whilst that other famous comedian
Sam Mayo , is still doing his act in a dressing-gown, but Th'e Immobile One has now introduced a piano.

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.
