Hughes and Lever
(Singing their own songs)
Courtney Hope in Character Studies
Presented by Martyn C. Webster
Hughes and Lever left their green-grocery business in Northampton to form a stage act billed as ' The Boys with Their Own Songs '. They have done a good deal of film work in England and abroad, and have appeared in several broadcasts, including the. Saturday - night Music - Hall. Hughes claims to have been the first person to compose a song in an aeroplane.
Courtney Hope , a county magistrate for Northampton, made her radio debut about a year ago. She founded the Hatton Dramatic Company, and is the organiser and leader of a concert party which raises large sums for charity every year.
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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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.
