The Water Babies-3
Adapted as a dialogue story from the tale by CHARLES KINGSLEY by BARBARA SLEIGH
5.35 ' The Butterfly that Stamped ' a ' Just So ' story by RUDYARD KIPLING told by DORIS LYTTON
from the Beach Pavilion, Aberdeen
Shakespeare tells us that some men are born great, that some achieve greatness, and that some have greatness thrust upon them. Listeners have heard Harry Gordon often enough to say to which of these categories he belongs. This year Harry attains his majority in the Beach Pavilion, having begun there twenty-one years ago at a salary of £2 a week. Eight years later he became lessee of the Pavilion, since when he has managed and produced a long succession of amusing shows, in addition to undertaking the work of principal comedian. Assisting him tonight are Murray Stewart and his Orchestra Mascotte, Joan Coleridge, Anne Ziegler, Fred Yule, Jack Holden, Jack Key, Four Paramount Tiller Girls, and Alice Stephenson.
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
