DORIS L. MACKINNON
In this opening broadcast of the term, Doris Mackinnon will describe the wonderful railway journey through a tunnel twelve miles long under the Alps, from the winter of Switzerland into the spring of Northern Italy.
A salient feature of her talk is the blessing in disguise it has been for the big towns of Italy that Italy has no coal. Electric power, drawing its strength from the hills along the lines of the great electric cables, runs everything, from trains to factories.

@ ' Our Village '
' Cottage Gardens'
Written for broadcasting by EDITH E. MACQUEEN , Ph.D.
It is good news that once again you are to hear more of ' Our Village 'the village of Stanwellstead, which must be as well known to you as any village in England. Today you are to hear your old friend Gaffer Brown , who has a voice extraordinarily like F. H. Grisewood 's, discussing things of the garden, with an eye on the flower show to be held on June 23. He will be exchanging ideas over the hedge with ' Old Henry '-that old friend of C. H. Middleton 's. Many of you may wonder if Middleton will be listening.

: My Lords. Ladies, and Gentlemen The Toast is HAIL, VARIETY !

A series of programmes devised and written by Gale Pedrick , in which he turns a spotlight on various traditional types of Music-Hall acts, each programme being compered by a present-day exponent of that style
No. 3, MR. CHAIRMAN
Compère, John Watt
Cast Davy Burnaby George Helton
Judy Shirley
Anthony Pelissier Naunton Wayne
The BBC Variety Orchestra and A Section of the BBC Revue
Chorus
Conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
Produced by Roy Speer .
Here is the story of the compere, who originated in the music-hall chairman of olden times. Very few of the latter still exist, but one at least has been found and will come to the microphone-George Helton , who is over 80 and who broadcast in ' In Town Tonight' a week or two ago.
An ideal compere of the early days of compering was the famous Harry Pelissier of ' The Follies' which flourished before the war. Something will be heard of him, and it is of interest that his son, Anthony Pelissier , is presenting the Pelissier Follies of 1938 next week at the Saville Theatre. London.
Listeners 'will also hear something about Balieff, the compere of the Chauve Souris , who specialised in broken English.

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.
