The American Impersonator
This famous American impersonator first broadcast in this country when she was over here two years ago. She is once more on a visit to England and has been broadcasting recently in the London Children's Hour. She specialises in impressions of Negro' mammies' and other Southern types to be met in America. Her impersonations are based on real-life characters, and her entertainment is given without the aid of music or any kind of effects-just herself alone.

10.2 Massed Bands of the Southern Command
This is the opening night of the seventeenth successive year of the Tidworth Tattoo, which is promoted by the Southern Command. The latter consists of troops in the counties of Warwick, Worcester, Gloucester, Oxford, Bucks, Berks, Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wilts, and parts of Hants. This year's tattoo marks the passing of the mounted cavalry regiments from Tidworth. All cavalry regiments stationed there will be mechanised next year-a change-over to be commemorated in a special feature ' Armour to Armour '.
At 9.29 the tattoo will be opened by cavalry trumpeters. At 9.30 listeners will hear the Combined Pipes and Drums, and Military Band of the ist Btn. The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and also the two items following.
As the two next items do not lend themselves to broadcasting, listeners will be taken to the studio to hear a special programme showing some of the notable exploits of the Second Cavalry Brigade (which are to be exemplified in ' Armour to Armour' in much the same way as ' Cavalry Epic ' was introduced into the broadcast of the Aldershot Tattoo at the beginning of June.
Just after 10 o'clock, when the episode finishes, listeners will be taken back to Tidworth to hear the Massed Bands.

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.
