: ' Aerbut and Gaertie Taern Crooners'

A Birmingham Dialect Sketch by GRAHAM SQUIERS
Presented by GRAHAM SQUIERS and EDITH JAMES
Aerbut Paerks and his wife Gaertie, and their family, were Birmingham characters created by Graham Squiers , who is a chartered accountant by profession, ran an amateur concert party, and has had about 300 songs and sketches published. ' Aerbut ' first became known nearly twenty-five years ago. It was left to the BBC to introduce an actual ' Gaertie ' in Edith James ; in earlier radio shows there was also Young Aerbut played by Albert Daniels , Gaertie's Aunt Maria, played by Mabel France , and Aerbut's Old Man played by Edgar Lane.
Graham Squiers wrote half-a-dozen radio sketches for Charles Brewer when the latter was producer at Birmingham.
Edith James, it is interesting to recall, is one of ten artists who broadcast in the winter of 1922-3 and are still on the books of the Birmingham station.

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.
