: 'OTHER WOMEN'S LIVES'

Winifred Holmes
Just over five years ago Winifred Holmes married on nothing, against everybody's advice. Her husband was out of a job. They started life in a tenement flat and she kept things going by her pen. After about a year her husband got back into the film world, and although she found at first that married life and a career didn't work out, she has managed to be very successful at both, even though she has a baby daughter. She has been film critic to a weekly paper, writes film features for a well-known magazine, and baby articles for a leading newspaper, has had a book published, and had a radio play The Invisibles produced at Newcastle in January.

VARIETY ORCHESTRA conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
A feature of tonight's Music-Hall is the appearance of a Royal Command Performance celebrity in Harry Claff of 'White Knight' fame, who will present his greatest character study, 'Bluff King Hal', an episode of Henry VIII. Before going into vaudeville, this fine artist appeared at the Savoy Theatre in Gilbert-and-Sullivan opera, and did five seasons at Drury Lane and a season at Covent Garden, besides fulfilling engagements at a number of other West End theatres.
He played two world tours with his various scenas. His costume for Henry VIII is a replica of the Holbein picture and, as the material is hand-woven brocade, it is uncomfortably heavy. While he was appearing in New York during a heat wave, the manager of the theatre was astonished to feel the weight of the costume. ' Say, Mr. Claff, you can't wear this. Why don't you play the act in a tuxedo ? ' Harry pointed out that he could not possibly play Henry VIII in evening dress. ' Why not ? ' replied the manager. ' And who is the guy anyway ? '

William Blake
Selected by Cloudesley Brereton and read by Anne Brooks
Dr. Cloudesley Brereton , who is directing the readings from Blake, has had a good deal of experience in the recitation of poetry, for he has been for many years one of the judges of diction at the Central School of Speech Training and Dramatic Art. He has also made a study of the prosody of French and English verse and the problems of rhythm in the two languages. He is one of the recognised authorities on the teaching of the French language in England, and many listeners may remember his notable broadcast talk on ' The Genius of France', when he made his radio debut in September, 1935.

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.
