Starlight: The Western Brothers

Kenneth and George

This afternoon's television Starlight programme is the most caddish ever broadcast. Listeners all over the country have heard Kenneth's and George's views on The Old School Tie, and Playing the Game, and Letting the Side Down. but viewers now have an opportunity of seeing these two cousins - they are not really brothers - in the flesh.
They have appeared at almost every music-hall and cabaret in London, and it is said on excellent authority that they go to bed with their monocles on.

Programme Summary; followed by: Starlight: 'Hutch' (Leslie A. Hutchinson)

Entertainer at the Piano
Leslie Hutchinson - he is just 'Hutch' to his fans - was originally intended for the medical profession. Now he is a great cabaret attraction. He is a brilliant pianist and has a voice to match. One of his hobbies is riding, but his greatest joy, he says, is to listen to a debate in the House of Commons.

All-Coloured Cabaret

The BBC Television Orchestra
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

Garland Wilson, pianist and vocalist, was born in West Virginia in 1909. He was a great success in cabaret in New York, and then with Nina Mae McKinney in Paris and London. Mabel Scott, who is now in London for the first time, has sung and danced in New York, and has appeared with Duke Ellington. Shortly she will be returning to America to work with Cab Galloway.
Like so many other well-known exponents of 'hot' music, trumpeter Cyril Blake is a West Indian. Two of his brothers are also well known in the show business, 'Happy' Blake, the Land leader, and Edgar, who is a guitarist. Harris and Howell form a combination that is popular all over America for film work and regular broadcasts for NBC. The Sepia Chorines have been assembled by Buddy Bradley specially for this show. The girls, like all the other artists in the cabaret, are coloured. Buddy Bradley is a brilliant dance director. In this country he is the equivalent of Busby Berkeley in the United States.

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.
