The Microphone pays a return visit to the White Horse Hotel, Birmingham, for a Variety Concert, with Rockets
Among the 350 members of the Rocket Club are many well-known Birmingham citizens. It was founded about forty years ago, and has raised large sums for stage and general charities, including £3,000 for six beds at Birmingham Cripples' Hospital. George Robey , Wilkie Bard , Dorothy Ward , and George Lashwood are among the many famous Variety artists who have given their services at its concerts.
As listeners will probably hear, the members signify their approval of star turns by making a noise like a rocket going up.
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.
