Not only Mancunians but nearly all people connected with the world of Variety have an affection for Leslie's Pavilion in Rusholme. It is familiarly known as 'Leslie's ', after the name of its veteran proprietor. Ever since it opened thirty-three years ago it has been the home of first-class concert parties, and an admirable peculiarity of the place has been the number of artists who have left its ' boards' to become top-line stars. Among those who made early appearances there are Leslie Henson and Jack Waller.
The Boy Who Played Truant
This is the fifth of a series prepared by an educational psychologist and a medical psychologist. The object of the series is to tell characteristic stories about children who have been ' awkward '. Each story will be related by the medical psychologist. The stories have happy endings, for they show how such misfortunes can at least be lessened, if not always cured.
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.
