: IF WET, UNDER THE PIER

FRANK DIXON traces the history of seaside entertainment and talks to Roy BUDD and MAX JAFFA
Produced by Geoff Lawrence
First broadcast in Radio 4: North
When Frank Dixon tells the story of seaside entertainment he is not content with persuading Max Jaffa to reveal the trade secrets of Britain's leading seaside orchestra. Nor does he stop at getting Roy Hudd to recall his concert-party days. He also summons up the voices of Clarkson Rose and of the original Fol-de-Rols. He calls predictably upon Florrie Forde and unexpectedly upon Louis MacNeice. He re-creates George III taking the first Royal dip, adds the minstrels, the pierrots, and the song arcades, and spices the lot with his own infectious enthusiasm for the lively history of entertainment.

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.
