On July 8 this popular concert party rang up the curtain at Paignton after a successful early summer season in the Channel Islands. They give a constant change of programme, and carnival and speciality nights are frequent. It is not generally realised that concert party artists have to rehearse day after day to keep pace with their incredible repertoire, to introduce the topical skit or verse or lines of dialogue on which depends the up-to-dateness of their show. Yet they are as fresh in August as they were in June. Frederic Lake recently had to run up to London to broadcast, but he was ' revelling ' again at Paignton the same night.

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.
