: KERBSIDE CABARET

London's Buskers' Own Show
(St. Martin's Lane Edition)
Written and devised by B. Martin
Marks
Compere, Charles Laughton
Many listeners will remember the last broadcast of Kerbside Cabaret at the end of October last year, when Charles Laughton brought to the microphone a number of the street entertainers, or buskers as they are called, whom he met in connection with his film St. Martin's Lane.
It is generally agreed that this broadcast array of kerbside talent was an outstanding success, so tonight Laughton is again bringing to the microphone some of these delightful characters from the London streets. As before, he will introduce them separately and tell little stories about them.
For some ten minutes of the programme Charles Laughton will give an extract or two from St. Martin's
Lane.

' Even Steeplejacks get Windy '
A. Taylor
Arthur Taylor , the Yorkshire steeple-jack who will give No, 3 in this series tonight, was up a 200-foot chimney when the top flew off. In falling it knocked the scaffolding such a blow that Taylor was catapulted into the air and alighted sprawling on what was left of the chimney.
This is one of the hair-raising episodes which will be told by one who will colour his narration with typical Yorkshire humour

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
