A nicely balanced and varied bill promises an agreeable hour of variety entertainment tonight. Listeners will be glad to hear those clever Cockney comedians Ben Osborne and Nellie Perryer back after several months' absence due to Miss Perryer's illness. Gretl Vernon, the Viennese nightingale, in the short time she has been in this country, has won a sure place with her sweet, melodious singing and whistling. Donald Peers, who is broadcasting for the second time, is a refreshingly natural singer of syncopated songs. Charles Hayes (' quite a nice lad ') is another artist with a distinctive style of his own; his quiet methods and ingenious touch make for very good humour. Then there is that popular ventriloquist, Johnson Clark, in conversational duel with the egregious ' Hodge.' Clarice Mayne, most charming of principal boys, puts the finishing touch to the programme with her imitations of other famous variety stars, impressions that, as she gives them, bring back without mockery the very flavour of old favourites. The programme as a whole will give listeners an hour of studio vaudeville, well contrasted with the more robust style of the ' Music Hall ' bill that will be heard on Saturday night.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
