' Resolutions for Nineteen Thaerty
The author of thtse sketches, Graham Squiers , is a Birmingham accountant. He has written a very large number of sketches and revues for broadcasting, his first appearance at the microphone having been in Birmingham in November, 1922. For several years he has been writing and publishing sketches in the Birmingham dialect. The hero of the early volumes was Aerbut Pacrks , and a number of these were broadcast.
Afterwards he decided to introduce in the sketches a typical Birmingham girl and the part of (iacrtie was created at the microphone by Edith James , an artist who, like Graham Squiers , made a broadcasting debut in 1922.
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.
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.
