: Variety

Relayed from
(By arrangement with Horace Collins )
(Aberdeen Programme)
THE TIVOLI THEATRE, Aberdeen, is the most northern outpost of regular first-class variety and revue in Scotland. It is often a pleasant surprise to visitors to the Granite City to find a theatre in the ' frozen north' which stages the same modern type of entertainment as. some of the best London music-halls. It was with this in view that the theatre -the inspiration of a small group of well-known Aberdonians-was built.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
