MICHAEL COLE
BETTY BOLTON
BERT MARLAND
NINA DEVITT and RALPH CORAM
The BEC VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by CHARLES SHADWELL
Orchestrations by BERT MARLAND
Production by BRYAN MICHIE
Here is a slightly different presentation of Variety, devised and compered by Ralph Coram , who has been associated with broadcasting from the earliest days. Bert Marland is the pianist and has done the orchestrations.
Listeners to the Monthly Revues will remember the brilliance of Arthur Marshall , who is a schoolmaster by profession, a comedian by instinct, and one of radio's discoveries. When he broadcasts during the term, all the boys at the school have the headmaster's permission to sit up and listen.
Mrs. Curtis Burnley Railing, the well-known American impersonator, is on a visit to England and has been broadcasting in the London Children's Hour. She was also booked for a solo broadcast in the evening programme on Saturday, August I.
With popular favourites like
Michael Cole , Betty Bolton , and Nina Devitt in the bill, to say nothing of that great favourite of Savoy Hill days, Billy Leonard , listeners should enjoy a grand half-hour.

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.

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.
