A New Year's Entertainment from
Summer is by no means the only season in Blackpool. Hundreds of Northerners go there at Christmas time; and there are those who, after Christmas, find in the keen sea air a much-needed pick-me-up after the ravages of turkey and plum pudding. There is no better place in which to sec the New Year in ; and a short microphone tour of the resort's attractions will show that everyone in Blackpool is still enjoying himself....
Listeners are to hear Larry Brennan 's
Dance Band in the Tower, perhaps the dancers, too, and an organ recital by the inimitable Reginald Dixon ; a quarter of a mile north along the front to the Imperial Hydro Hotel, with Laddie Clarke's' Orchestra playing light music within ; then back to the Palace Theatre, from which an excerpt from the Variety bill will be broadcast.
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.
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.
