Relayed from
The Empress Playhouse, Glasgow
THE HISTORY of the Empress Playhouse makes fascinating reading. As the West End Playhouse it was opened on August 4, 1913, as a first-class vaudeville hall. Sadly, it was before its time and at once was doomed to failure. During the War it was leased out and showed pictures interspersed with a few short variety turns. In 1920 the lease expired, the proprietors came back, and with James S. Neilson at the helm, determined to win over a cinema audience to variety. At first short pictures-serials and comedies-were retained, but gradually they were cut down and cut down until vaudeville held complete sway again. The audiences were won over and have been loyal ever since, realising that by spending a modest shilling (or less) they can obtain a variety bill that compares favourably with any other bill in Scotland

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
