: A MINIATURE CAVALCADE OF SONG

The Southern Sisters
Betty Southern and Frank Hagley at the two pianos
The Southern Sisters produced their new show, 'A Cavalcade of Song ', on the halls last December. The act is beautifully staged and dressed, and the talent of the ' sisters' (Betty and Vera, unlike Sybille, are really sisters) is second to none.
They have been booked for the Bellevue Strand Hotel, Copenhagen, for the whole month of June, and will be appearing three times nightly at this luxury hotel situated twenty minutes outside Copenhagen and right on the beach. While they are out there they will be broadcasting from Norway and Sweden, as well as from Denmark, and they are booked for further broadcasts from London on their return.

: THE GENERAL SITUATION

' How Hogsnorton is Situated '
Described by Mr. Gillie Potter
Hogsnorton is ready-it was never otherwise-Semper Paratus has ever been the motto of Borough and Burgess alike ; for which cause it was deemed the most cussed corner of his realm by Ethelred the Unready.
No crisis can affect the cool calm of the trivial round of a community which has lived dangerously ever since the demolition of Hadrian's Wall ; though in one respect it enjoys a certain security denied the rest of England, for no alien may settle down within Hogsnorton without leave, nor leave Hogsnorton without settling up.
Tonight Mr. Gillie Potter will take us around the ancient walls of his native place to witness from that vantage the nightly ceremony of ' Tavern Turn Out

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.
