' Jobs on a Pleasure Beach '
By a Showman and a Waitress
This morning listeners are to hear how two separate classes of people work while the world is at play on Blackpool beach.
A showman will describe his job. He has been in the business all his life, and knows pleasure beaches everywhere, and the way to entice those who are on pleasure bent. Listeners will hear some of the excitements of his life and what ' making the bet' means.
A waitress at a cafe which keeps open from 6.30 in the morning till 3 the next morning in the height of the Blackpool season will talk about her life. It is part of her job never to look tired, and to be good-tempered and attentive to the holiday crowd. She appreciates it when they regard it as part of theirs to reward her with tips that are a fair recompense for working while others play.

: Some Eighteenth-Century Verse

Read by PETER TREVELYAN
The eighteenth century had its characteristic wit, as will be shown in various epigrams and epitaphs and in Dean Swift 's obituary of himself in verse : My female friends, whose tender hearts Have better learned to act their parts, Kotcive the news in doleful dumps;
The Dean is dead: (Pray what are trumps?)...
It had beauty too: for instance,
Congreve's songs at its beginning, and Blake's towards its close; and it had charm, as is apparent in Ambrose Philips's delightful verses to a little child. Other items to be read by Peter Trevelvan will be an extract from Pope's 'Essay on Criticism' and Gray's 'Ode to Spring'.

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.
