: THE COSMOPOLITAN FOUR

Directed by Harry Robbins
Compere, Chappie D'Amato with Beryl Orde in impersonations
The Cosmopolitan Four, well known now for their bright rendering of novelty numbers, began their present series on April 5, and bring it to an end this afternoon.
Harry Robbins , its director, was with the Savoy Orpheans in 1927, and subsequently with Jack Hylton for over four years, and also with Henry Hall 's Dance Orchestra. His most recent engagement was with Debroy Somers when the latter's famous band was playing in Running Riot at the Gaiety. Robbins has toured every country in Europe except Rumania and Russia, and has broadcast in most of them.
London-born Harry Bidgood arranges most of the music for the Cosmopolitan Four. He was at one time musical director of a well-known gramophone company.
Tommy Nicol , who is a Scot, plays the accordion, and Bobb Rob son, the string bass. Compere of the show is Chappie D'Amato , well known for his hill-billy songs and burlesques of Italian singing.

: THE CITY OF LONDON

' Al at Lloyd's' (Insurance)
Alan Ivimey
Although marine insurance was the primary function of Lloyd's, there is now scarcely any form of risk that may not be underwritten in the famous ' Room '. The speaker will describe how a typical insurance transaction is put through at Lloyd's, and will show how risks are spread over the whole House, and will have something to say about the famous Lutine bell that rings whenever news of special importance, such as the sinking of a big ship, comes through.

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.
