Cabaret

with Ronald Frankau, Comedian, Michaelson, Cartoonist, Paddy Brown, Diseuse and The June Dancers.
In addition to the June Dancers, an unusual dancing act, Michaelson, a cartoonist whom viewers have seen before, and Paddy Brown, a diseuse who has been very successful in West-End non-stop revue, this evening's cabaret is noteworthy for the appearance of Ronald Frankau.
The son of Frank Danby and the younger brother of Gilbert Frankau, the novelists, Ronald Frankau left Eton and slowly but determinedly drifted on to the stage. He made his first appearance in the chorus of A Country Girl at Daly's. His first real success was with his own concert party, called 'The Cabaret Kittens'. Since December 1934, his double act on the air with Tommy Handley as Murgatroyd and Winterbottom has been one of the highlights of broadcast Variety. On the stage and in cabaret Ronald Frankau is now one of the biggest attractions. He is entertaining both as a singer and as a raconteur.

Cabaret: Eric Wild and his Tea-Timers

with Anne Lenner.

Eric Wild's Tea-Timers are an unusual combination consisting of a xylophone played by Gilbert Webster, bass by Fred Underhay, guitar Eric Robinson, saxophone Ken Bray, trombone Bill Tesky, and cornet by Eric Wild. It specialises in the soft, rhythmic style of playing. All these players are members of the BBC Television Orchestra.
Nearly three years ago, Carroll Gibbons heard this evening's vocalist, petite Anne Lenner, singing in a night club. Soon afterwards she signed a long-term contract to appear with him at the Savoy. She made her television début on January 2, with a band that was assembled and conducted by Val Rosing. Her first stage appearance was at the age of thirteen, when she was one of the Babes in The Babes in the Wood. Before joining Carroll Gibbons she made a big name for herself in cabaret and revue. Her sister, Judy Shirley, took part in "Cabaret Cartoons", which was televised on Monday, January 18.

Cabaret

with Walsh and Barker
Rosarito, Spanish dances
Peter Godfrey

Walsh and Barker, though they come from America, have been well known in this country for a long time on the music-hall stage, and in films, radio, and television. Their ingenious original material has also made them great favourites as a sophisticated cabaret turn, and the television screen provides an especially suitable medium for their style, as viewers may already know from their appearance in 'Cabaret Cruise' some weeks ago.
Peter Godfrey, who is only thirty-seven years old, has been associated in his career with an enormous variety of undertakings in the spheres of the music-hall, film directing, the circus, play-writing, the repertory stage, and theatrical management. He was the founder of the Gate Theatre, which he directed from 1925 to 1934.

Cabaret

The Four Hawaiian Islanders Instrumental Speciality
Billie Baker in Songs
Luanne Shaw Dancer
In addition to Billie Baker and Luanne Shaw this evening's cabaret includes the Hawaiian Islanders, who are one of the few genuine four-brother acts in Variety. The team is made up of Peter Hodgkinson, who leads with a steel and Hawaiian guitar, Michael, who plays the Spanish guitar, Jim, the string bass, and Joe, who is the ukulele expert. Peter, by the way, is regarded as one of the finest exponents of the Hawaiian guitar in Europe.

Cabaret

Draper and Shires, Dancers
Howard Rogers in a monologue
Juggling Cottrillos
The BBC Television Orchestra
Conductor, Hyam Greenbaum

Grace Draper was originally in the chorus of Give Me a Ring at the London Hippodrome in 1933. Afterwards she joined up with a partner and put on a very successful tap-dancing act known as 'Jack and Jill'. Six months later she accepted a solo dancing engagement in Milan, where she met her present partner, Alan Shires. They made their first appearance in England at the Piccadilly Hotel in March 1935, since when they have established themselves as an outstandingly clever dancing team.
Howard Rogers has been a favourite artist of cabaret-goers for nearly twenty years. His sketch, which will be presented today, "P.C. Hoppitt's Retirement", has been shown all over South Africa, Australia, and Canada.
BBC Television

Cabaret

with Oriel Ross, Billy Milton, Yvonne Gale And Paul Anton, Katrina Tamarova.

In addition to the appearance of Yvonne Gale and Paul Anton, and Katrina Tamarova, this cabaret programme is notable for the inclusion of Oriel Ross, who in private life is Lady Poulett. She was trained at the Royal College of Music in London, and made her first appearance on the stage at the Regent Theatre in "The Insect Play". Since then she has appeared in important stage and film roles all over the world, and has made a big reputation in straight and musical parts.

The Bryants Silent Comics

(both by permission of the London Casino Restaurant and Clifford C. Fischer)
Joan Miller 'Grand Hotel, Good Morning!'
Lu Anne Meredith in Songs and Dances
The Knife-Throwing Denvers Western Speciality

All these artists have appeared before in television programmes. The Bryants go through their hobo act without saying a word, and invariably leave their audience helpless with laughter; the Seven Menorcas were one of the attractions in a cabaret bill televised on February 20; Joan Miller is in the studio every Wednesday as the switchboard girl in 'Picture Page'; Lu Anne Meredith, the famous American film star, was seen in February; and the Knife-Throwing Denvers, a hair-raising act, full of thrills, were seen last November.
This show will be presented with film shots of express trains of all nations, the captions being displayed on railway signals.

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.
