: JACK McCORMICK AND HIS AMBASSADORS

This well-known broadcasting dance band, immensely popular on Merseyside, has steadily built up -a big reputation in the last five years at Liverpool's Rialto Ballroom. There are Liverpool folk in plenty who scout the idea that there is a better band in the country. McCormick himself has played in bands at all the big hotels in Scotland under Henry Hall 's direction. He was a good violinist, with a band of his own, when he was only eighteen. In addition to all this, he is an excellent 'talent-spotter'; several of his 'discoveries ' have since won fame in other dance bands.

THE VICTORIA THEATRE,
BURNLEY and THE THEATRE ROYAL,
STOCKPORT
The Burnley Victoria is one of the oldest of Lancashire's theatres, and it has put on almost every kind of entertainment during its fifty years' career. The late George Formby made his debut there, and a number of the big names of today have to thank this house for their first opportunities. Stockport Theatre Royal, which has also an honourable history, was recently on the air for the first time. It has been the home of straight plays, and many famous players have appeared there.

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.
