England v. The Rest

on gramophone records


for Suzette Tarri and her ' Road
Show '
Devised by Suzette Tarri and written by Robert Rutherford. Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
The BBC Revue Chorus and the BBC Variety Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Scene: A schoolroom in East
Suzette Tarri , we understand, has been told by neighbours in her suburb that, while she has got away with it over the microphone, they can do just as well. So this afternoon a number of them have taken a hall, where, before managers and producers, they will show their paces!
Suzette Tarri , famous Cockney comedian, will of course be there herself to hear the efforts of her
' neighbours ', and it seems as though she will have to look to her laurels. Cyril Fletcher is well known for his Edgar Wallace recitation about the absent-minded soldier. Sidney Burchall has been with the ' Pig and Whistle '. Tommy Brandon is a well-known Lancashire comedian, and Arthur Marshall , an Oundle schoolmaster, has broadcast a lot in Monthly Revues. Accordion-playing Tollefsen is just back from a fortnight's holiday in his native Norway. The Three Admirals, harmony singers, appeared in ' Paradise Island ', and Hebe Haworth is a comparative newcomer to broadcasting.
' Tarri Awhile' was broadcast in the Regional programme on Thursday

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

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.
