ALEXANDRA THEATRE ,HULL
The Alexandra Theatre was constructed in the first decade of the century by the Mortons to alleviate the pressure on the Grand, which is now a cinema. For years the 'Alex' held aloft on its stage the torch of melodrama. Many changes have taken place in Hull since those days, but the old theatre remains, now welcoming Variety to its big stage and auditorium. It will not be possible for all the artists in the bill to be heard, but it is hoped that listeners will get good-all-round fare.
10.0 THE LYCEUM THEATRE,
Like Hull's Alexandra Theatre , which the microphone visited earlier this evening, the Lyceum Theatre at Sheffield is already well known to Northern listeners as the source of many excellent music-hall entertainments. The audience often add to the attractions of programmes by their appreciative roars of laughter. The auditorium holds about 2,500 people, and on the stage have trod some of the greatest actors and Variety performers of the day.
Although the general policy of the theatre nowadays is to stage Variety shows, occasionally a straight play is presented. In October, for instance, Godfrey Tearle is to appear in The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse.
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

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.
