Among the cast, besides Leslie Vernon, are Carl Hadden, speciality dancer, who was at one time with the "Fol-de-Rols"; Alice Coty, entertainer; Newton Lees, bass-baritone; Herbert Aldridge, another old "Fol-de-Rol"; Pauline Ward, soubrette and dancer, who has been televised; Gladys Penny, soprano; Arthur Astaire, a young comedian and dancer with a famous name, who, oddly enough, played Fred Astaire's role in "Gay Divorce" on tour; The Cabaret Girls, starring Margaret Mercer, Reymonde Seton, Joan Stacey, and Ruby Savage, who have appeared at all the big West-End hotels; and Barry Humphrey, musical director, who leads his Five Rhythm Boys and has arranged all the musical numbers.

: TOM JENKINS

at the BBC Theatre Organ
Tom Jenkins , of the Plaza, Swan-sea, who will give his first recital on the BBC Theatre Organ tonight, has broadcast 220 times, but his most painful memory is of his first broadcast to the Empire, when he was still suffering from a sprained ankle through falling down a flight of steps four days before. Determined not to miss the broadcast, he had the swollen ankle massaged every hour for four days, finishing up with a last-minute massage in the front seats of the cinema-and got through.

: ' YES AND BACK AGAIN'

A Paraphrase by E. J. King Bull
Being a dramatic sequence for broadcasting founded, with the author's consent, upon ' The Story of This Book ', by Walter de la Mare , from his anthology ' Come Hither '
' The which things ben said by allegory or ghostly understanding'
(Wyclif)
Cast
The incidental music by Victor Hely -Hutchinson directed by Jean Pougnet and played by the Leslie Bridgewater
Quintet
Production by Barbara Burnham
Few programmes can have had a busier career than ' Yes and Back Again', ', E. J. King Bull's allegorical fantasy founded on Walter de la Mare's ' The Story of this Book'.
It was first broadcast in September, 1930, with Howard Rose as producer, and made a great impression by its other-worldly atmosphere and its air of meaning just a little more than one could understand. It was revived in April, 1931, and in December the same year, and was broadcast from Belfast in November, 1934. Once more it is ' back again ', and listeners are to have this opportunity of yet another peep into the mysterious House of Thrae.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
