Belle Vue Mammoth Circus
A broadcast from King's Hall,
Belle Vue, Manchester
Equestrian director, George Lockhart
The programme arranged by George Lockhart and Victor Smythe with interludes from the studio by The Nelson (Late Old) Band
Conductor, C. Smith
The big circus at Belle Vue, Manchester, is always one of the main attractions of the North's New Year entertainment season, for the event brings more than a dozen acts of a high standard. Many of them are of international repute. There is attraction for young and old in the wonderful horses and wild animals, the clowns, and the sensational acrobats, and all the. rest of the romance and thrills to be found under ' the Big Top '.
In this broadcast listeners will hear some of the acts and will hear descriptions of them. As usual, the popular George Lockhart , genial equestrian director, will contribute to the commentaries and the interviews. He has known the circus world all his life and he seems to be just as good at telling the unseen listener what is happening as he is at directing the activities in the Ring. Black-pool, as well as Manchester, knows him well ; for years he has been the central figure at the Tower Circus 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.
