A Programme of Yorkshire Variety with NORAH BLANEY
CULLEY AND GOFTON
DORIS NICHOLS
H. C. RYCROFT
WILLIAM WIGHTMAN
C. B. PULMAN and THE WEST RIDING REVUE ORCHESTRA
Conductor, James TURNER
Compered by ZACHARIAH BRIGGUS
Produced by JAN BUSSELL
The programme entitled ' Leeds on the Aire' (and apart from broadcasting, the city of Leeds is situated on the banks of the River Aire), is a new Yorkshire Variety show, and is to be representative of the West Riding in general. Norah Blaney , the well-known actress, and James 0. Turner (leading the West Riding Revue Orchestra) come from Bradford, while James R. Gregson (author of a sketch included in the programme) is a Huddersfield man. Incidentally, it is Gregson's famous creation, Zachariah Briggus , of the Beckshire Chronicles, who comperes the show. Two popular local comedians, Culley and Gofton, contribute some burlesques ; there is a sketch by C. B. Pulman , author of the ' Stories of Storr' broadcast last year; while James 0. Turner's orchestra, which made its debut in January last in ' Club Sandwich', is to play two works specially composed for the occasion by the conductor-one of these being a humorous piece descriptive of a day in the life of an intrepid airman.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
