Mary McCreath and a company of eighty performers
Produced by Emile Littler from the King's Theatre, Edinburgh
The story of Aladdin and his wonderful lamp is always popular, and this King's Theatre production is no exception. Aladdin is played by Cora Goffin , who needs no introduction to listeners. Davy Burnaby , whose name always conjures up memories of the Co-Optimists, is making one of his rare appearances in Edinburgh, and Stanley Holloway , creator of Sam and his Musket and Albert and the Lion, brings a breath of Lancashire air across the Border. To name two other celebrities in the cast, there are Collinson and Dean, famed for one of the most hilarious cross-talk acts on the music-hall stage.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
