A Variety Entertainment
Organised by Wee Georgie Wood , for the Lest We Forget Association (Kingston Branch), given by several well-known Variety artists
Compere, Wee Georgie Wood
Broadcast from the Kingston Empire
Though Wee Georgie Wood at one time dropped the ' Wee', his admirers all over the world persisted in calling him Wee Georgie Wood ) his original stage name. And so he bowed to their wishes.
Both on the stage and on the air
Dolly Harmer is known as his long-suffering but loving mother. Wee Georgie gets an idea, and from it, with her help, is evolved each of the domestic episodes. Wee Georgie has travelled all over the world—seven tours to the United States and Canada, two to Australia, and one to New Zealand.
This afternoon listeners are to hear the Variety entertainment he has organised at the Kingston Empire again this year for the benefit of ex-Service men, who themselves will constitute the audience.

: Carroll Levis and his Discoveries

The second in the second series of programmes of new and unknown artists from all parts of the British Isles
What has become Carroll Levis's life-work in searching for amateur talent, and bringing it before the public, came about almost by accident. In the days when he was broadcasting in Canada he introduced from time to time new artists to the radio, and one day was inspired to invite any member of the audience to come up and show what they could do. This grew into an amateur hour in Canada and he received an offer to go to the States. As he was a British subject, however, this was impossible. He sailed for England at the end of 1935 and a year later started his first series of broadcasts. Today's broadcast is the second in the new series.
He discovers talent in all parts of the British Isles, and in the last two years has heard thirty thousand people. Of the amateur acts he has introduced, forty-five have turned professional. Not one of them is earning less than £5 a week, and one is getting as much as £25. He runs two shows presenting his radio discoveries and gives contracts for not less than a year to those who are really good. But he advises everyone, unless exceptionally talented, to stick to his job.

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.
