Broad comedy, gentle satire, and good tunes are the ingredients of these newly-formed Radio ' Follies.' This well-balanced team broadcasts tonight for the first time, and will be heard at regular intervals throughout the autumn and winter. Lupino Lane is the leading comedian, and he is supported by Anona Winn , Marjery Wyn and Cyril Smith , all of whom appeared with him in the successful revue, Nine Days' Wonder. Two other experienced broadcasters, Reginald Purdell and William Stephens , with the new Radio dancing troupe, tho Eight Step Sisters, make up the company.

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.
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.
