: CHILDREN OF THE STARS

(No. 4)
A light entertainment devised and presented by Ralph Coram with Frank, Louie, and Ronnie Formby
(Children of the famous
George Formby ) and Patricia Burke
(Daughter of Marie and Tom Burke )
Compere, Ralph Coram
(Son of the famous ventriloquist
Coram)
At the pianos:
Bob Perks and Wilfrid Parry
Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
Ralph Coram , son of that well-known artist, the late Coram, of Coram and Jerry, has written the material for this broadcast in which all the artists to appear are, like himself, the children of stars. He will act as compere of the show and introduce the acts, and also do numbers of his own. Listeners will hear Patricia Burke , daughter of Tom Burke and Marie Burke. Patricia sings charmingly, and also does very good character and comedy work. Then general interest will be aroused by the broadcasting of two sons and a daughter of that famous music-hall comedian, the late George Formby. Louie is a comedienne ; Ronnie a robust baritone ; Frank, a comedian like his father. About a year ago they all broadcast with Ralph Coram to the Empire in an entertaining show How's That, and their brother, George Formby , junior, by the way, is quickly winning fame like their father, surely one of the greatest of Lancashire comedians.

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.

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.
