: ' REHEARSAL'

A glimpse of preparations for the broadcast from the Argyle Theatre,
Birkenhead, this evening
Today, for the first time, listeners are to hear a rehearsal in the morning of a Variety show that is being broadcast the same night. The theatre chosen is the music-hall that is one of the most popular as well as one of. the smallest theatres in the North of England — the Argyle, Birkenhead, from which broadcasts have been given regularly for years. It should make tonight's broadcast all the more interesting that listeners have been given a chance of hearing Jimmie Hunter and his Brighton Follies preparing for their ordeal.

: THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conductor, Leslie Heward from the Town Hall, Birmingham
Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn is one of the greatest works of its kind, showing a sense of beauty and proportion and an ingenuity of treatment that remain as fresh and expressive today as when it was first performed in 1873. The climax of the work is the finale, which is a magnificent passacaglia, the ground or repeated bass of which is derived from the opening Haydn theme (the ' Chorale St. Antonii ').

This play shows how he dealt with all the difficulties until the first Eddystone Lighthouse stood firm to show 'Light Ahead'.

There will be vocal numbers by Dia Jones , the Welsh tenor, and Frances heymour gay Scottish airs by Jimmie Hunter 's Young Ladies ; accordion solos by Bobbie Watson ; and last but not least, more comedy by Bill Brewer.

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.
