: Ladder of Fame

A programme featuring Discoveries from all parts of the British Isles
Presented by Carroll Levis and Ronald Waldman
with Pearl Venters, Eric Sincock, Doreen Blyth, Garry Gowan, Terry Devon, Constance Impey, David Delmonte, Tony Vaughan, Sheffield Twins, The Singing Tailors and Alfred Van Dam and his Orchestra
Compere, Carroll Levis
(By permission of Sir Oswald Stoll )
Every artist to be heard in this programme is a Discovery of Carroll Levis's now earning his or her living with the exception of Doreen Blyth, who sings Negro spirituals and is now studying singing with a view to a professional career. All the material for the show, with the exception of the songs, has been written by the Discoveries themselves.
Among those on the bill are Garry Gowan, an early Discovery, who has made a name for himself in the dance band world, and is at present vocalist with Oscar Rabin's Orchestra; Constance Impey, rapidly making good - she sang on the air with Charles Shadwell in one of his mid-day concerts early last month; Tony Vaughan, a Newport boy discovered at Croydon, with an unusual voice and personality; and, smallest of the Discoveries, the Sheffield Twins, about whom Levis says "These small boys play several musical instruments well enough to be welcome members of any orchestra".

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.
