from
THE ARGYLE THEATRE,
BIRKENHEAD
The Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead, is so famous that it is referred to merely as the Argyle — everyone knows where it is. The summer months, when many other theatres close up, are its busiest time, and T. D. Clarke-the third generation of the same family to manage it-has to employ a man to conduct parties over it. They come from everywhere in Great Britain, even from Canada and South Africa, and ask to see where the microphone is, to have a look at the old bills. One and all they express surprise that the Argyle is so small, they thought it was a huge theatre.
Tonight listeners are to hear acts drawn from the following : Jack Edge ; the Lloyd Family ; Raymond Smith ; Lapidus and Whelan ; Winsor and Wilton, and Doris Cuban.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
