: Shows From the Seaside: No. 7: Twinkle

(A Series of Concert Party Broadcasts)

Presented by Clarkson Rose
Introduced by Harry S. Pepper and Davy Burnaby from the Pier Pavilion, Eastbourne
Clarkson Rose's "Twinkle" Company, established at Ryde in 1921, celebrated its seventeenth birthday on June 29 at the Palace Pier, Eastbourne, where they are playing to business that looks likely to beat their season there last year when they played to 120,000 people.
Clarkson Rose is proprietor and joint producer with Olive Fox, leading lady - the two being the only members of the original company. The dresses which are a feature are by Helen Fischer, who also arranges the ballets and dances. The musical director and pianist is Conrad Leonard.
Others who may be heard tonight are Eddie Henderson, comedian; Gordon Holdom, the baritone who won Sir Landon Ronald's prize last year at the Guildhall School of Music; Rupert Rogers, light comedian, for several seasons with the "Sunshine" Company at Shanklin; Joy Hayden, one of "Cochran's young ladies", now an attractive soubrette; Ann Leslie, a young soprano; Rex Korda, character actor and comedian; The Three D'Alton Brothers; The Six Swingopators; and the Four Clarkson Rosebuds.

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.
