'Have I got a job for you!', 'The cheque's in the post', 'I'll phone you back'. The myths of the theatrical agent are legion. Nick Baker found out if any are true when he camped out at the office of ATS, one of the best known provincial agencies. Michael and Stanley Joseph ,
ATS's owners, have the theatre in their blood. Their busy agency supplies the northern entertainment industry with all manner of artists - big name comics. TV actors, musical acts and walk-ons, not to mention the after-dinner speaker, a part-time hypnotist and the odd stripper. A slice of theatrical life in the company of two larger-than-life theatricals - The Brothers 10 per cent.

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.
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.
