ORCHESTRA
Conducted by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
The feature of tonight's Palace of Varieties is that Herman Darewski , among the greatest of musical show-men, is to broadcast as the Chairman. When Ernest Longstaffe nervously approached him, Darewski, with his love of doing anything new, rose to it with enthusiasm. He had known personally one of the last of the Chairmen at the London music-halls — a great character who had long retired. Darewski made a sketch of him from memory and faithfully copied it in his make-up, as shown on the cover of this week's RADIO Times. He has written all the material for the Chairman himself.
There is the usual excellent bill:
Georgie Harris , a very bright little man who made a name for himself in Hollywood, now making his radio debut in this country ; Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day, well known to listeners ; Suzette Tarri , a Longstaffe discovery, broadcasting a new monologue about lodgers in which' she takes the part of a maid-of-all-work at a boarding-house ; Hughes and Lever, who made their radio name in a ' Tea-Time Hour'; Francis Walker , a protege of Darewski's, who will be on the air for the first time ; Abe and Mawruss, a popular Hebrew act, who have broadcast in ' Music-Hall ' ; and, as a sparkling finish, ' Raggymemories ', headed by Peter Bernard , compere of Radiolympia in 1936, who has just returned from a tour of India.

: 'SOFA ONE. SOFA TWO'

A short story by A. E. Coppard read by Harcourt Williams
Few writers have begun their literary careers as late as A. E. Coppard , whose first book appeared in 1921, when he was forty-three. But this book, 'Adam and Eve and Pinch Me', at once attracted attention and announced the advent of a new, strikingly individual talent in the field of the English short story.
Coppard is a poet as well as a short-story writer and, quiet and restrained as his prose style is, it is unmistakably a poet's prose. As Ford Madox Ford has put it, ' Mr. Coppard is almost the first English writer to get into English prose the peculiar quality of English lyric poetry.'

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.
