Mrs. J-ack Hylton started her band as a bet. More than two years ago Jack bet her a car she couldn't do anything of the kind. He came back from tour and she met him with her band. He had to pay up. Last year she toured 25,000 miles, playing on both sides of the Channel.
Mario de Pietro, as facile on the mandoline as on the banjo, is to give samples of his playing on both. George Doonan , at the age of five, sang ' You've Got a Long Way to Go '. He stayed the course.
The ' Trix Sisters ' was probably the first of the sister acts to become famous. Josephine is American and Helen English ; so their act has an international flavour.
Harry Tate has been in pantomime at Brighton and should be in good vein, for he is never happier than by the sea.
Whilst that other famous comedian
Sam Mayo , is still doing his act in a dressing-gown, but Th'e Immobile One has now introduced a piano.

A Carol Service

(Section C) and members of THE BBC MILITARY BAND
Conducted by LESLIE WOODGATE
Relayed from St. Mary's, Whitechapel

When Christ was born .... A. H. Brown 'Twas in the winter cold....... Barnby In dulci Jubilo ...... arr. de Pearsall The Manger Throne Steggall 0 come, all ye faithful (A. and M 59)
Thirteen years ago, in the first year of broadcasting, the Rev. John A. Mayo , Rector of St. Mary's, Whitechapel, gave the first sermon ever heard on the air; and to celebrate the anniversary of the first Christmas he suggested tha' some singers should come down from Marconi House to his church on Christmas Eve, and that their singing of carols in the churchyard amid the sounds of the traffic of the streets be broadcast. Owing to rain, the stage had to be transferred from the churchyard to the church, from the interior of which the broadcast has been given ever since.
Again this evening the BBC
Chorus, twenty strong, and some members of the BBC Military Band-two clarinets, two cornets, a bassoon, an euphonium, a flute, and a bass—are to go down to Whitechapel. They will stand at the foot of the nave in this historic church, that dates from the thirteenth century, and in the dim light sing ' joyous hymns '.
In an interlude between the carols,
Mr. Mayo, of long custom, will give a ' little chat' about Whitechapel, about his work there, and about the parishioners he has grown to love. And, at the end of the singing, the ' waits ' will wend away with Mr. Mayo to the little Christmas feast he has prepared.

Compere CHARLES MANNING
AND HIS ORCHESTRA
Production by CHARLES PENLEY
Tonight listeners are to hear a programme from well-known broadcasters. Stainless Stephen-colon, comma, full-stop-is so famous that a racehorse has been named after him, and it won the other week. Navarre-' Round the World in Song '-can give faithful impersonations of anybody from Tauber to Harry Lauder. from Maurice Chevalier to Chaliapin-and even Melba and Clara Butt.
The great Sam Mayo was a star in the heyday of the Music-Halls. He adopted a dressing-gown then ; but in recent years he has discovered himself as a straight act with a piano.
Tollefsen is a Dane and truly a wizard with an accordion. The Tiger Rag-a-Muffins play two pianos and used to be with Harry Roy 's Band. Peter Bernard , the popular entertainer, is to compere. And everybody knows Charles Man ning and his Orchestra.

' GOD AND THE WORLD THROUGH CHRISTIAN EYES'— II

A Religious Lecture from the Studio
' The History of our Knowledge of God'
Dr. EDWYN BEVAN , O.B.E., D.Litt.
Preceded by a Short Service, conducted by Dr. BEVAN Dr. Edwyn Bevan , who is Lecturer on Hellenistic History and Literature at King's College, London, gives the second address in the first course of a comprehensive series. The series is divided into four courses of six lectures each, and is intended to form a statement of the present-day position of Christianity. After conducting a short preliminary service, Dr. Bevan will describe the history of Man's Idea of God, which he regards as a series of crises due to the rise of ' prophets ' who uttered what they believed to be a message direct from God. He begins with the covenant between Jehovah and Israel, passes to the teaching of the prophets of the eighth century, B.C., and concludes with the great extension of the Idea of God that followed the life and death of Christ, and the subsequent spread of the Christian Gospel. The series is supplemented by a small pamphlet, entitled ' God and the World through Christian Eyes '-of which the Reverend John Mayo has said : ' ; 1 . it is compact of high thinking, of the ripest scholarship, of incisive reasoning, of the closest argument, yet all couched in illuminating phrase as might be expected from such a brilliant roll of Christian philosophers.' It can be obtained from the Publications Dept., B.B.C., London, W.I, price 4d., or 5d. post free.

Cast

Production by Hugh Hunt and Henry McMullan
(From Northern Ireland)
'The Playboy of the Western World' will be broadcast again tomorrow at
9.10 in the Regional programme
Not many plays since CEdipus Rex have had a parricide for the hero. And Christy Mahon took his crime more lightheartedly than tragic, unconscious CEdipus-reflecting at the end of Act I, ' Well, it's great luck and company I've won me in the end of time — two fine women fighting for the likes of me-till I'm thinking this night wasn't I a foolish fellow not to kill my father in the years gone by.' But Christy was no ordinary murderer: ' I never used weapons. I've no licence, and I'm a law-fearing man..... I just riz the loy and let fall the edge of it on the ridge of his skull.' Very different from the way the Widow Quin committed her little murder: ' She hit himself with a worn pick, and the rusted poison did corrode his blood the way he never overed it, and died after. That was a sneaky kind of murder did win small glory with the boys itself.'






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.
