: ' PALACE OF VARIETIES '

(Eighth visit to this popular theatre)
Once again the popular Palace of Varieties is on the air with its usual merry bill. Listeners will hear those old favourites, Haver and Lee, the fun racketeers ; Rossi, the marvellous boy accordionist who was recently at the Palladium with Jack Hylton ; Ernest Shannon in impersonations of old-time music-hall stars ; Biddy and Fanny, ' two dames ' from the Windmill Theatre ; Les Allen and Kitty Masters, of Henry Hall and BBC fame ; Tom Brandon , a Longstaffe discovery (' He's a very quaint Lancashire comedian with an original way of answering his own questions: "Will you do an act, Tom ? " — " I will with pleasure"'); and finally, the Radio Revellers in an entirely new repertoire including an imitation of an old phonograph record running down in the middle.
Listeners will remember that at the last Palace of Varieties Ralph Truman , who has sat in the stalls and introduced so many of the turns, brought his ' fiancée ' with him. Tonight for a change he is to bring his ' uncle '. His uncle is to be impersonated by a man whose name has been well known in the theatre for forty-five years. S. Major Jones made his first appearance in London at the Princess's Theatre in 1897 as Bill Mullins in that grand melodrama Two Little Vagabonds, and at the same theatre succeeded Charles Warner as Happy Jack in How London Lives. He must have been stage manager in his time at almost every West End theatre, but will be chiefly remembered for his long association with the Lyceum, where he stage-managed fifty plays and no fewer than twelve pantomimes.

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.
