Paul Shane looks back on the golden age of working men's clubs - the training ground for so many of today's entertainers. With the benefit of 20 years as a "club turn" himself, he explores the strange world of "secs", committee men and three houses of bingo, and talks to some of the stars who lived through the experience. Producer Geoff Sargieson
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

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

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.
