Your Presence is Requested

Lady Brewery-Smythe is holding a musical evening
Apart from yourselves,
The guests will include Claude Dampier, Phyllis Clare, Bobby Duke and Jack London, Three in Harmony
Her ladyship - Vera Lennox
Her ladyship's butler - Dick Francis
BBC Variety Orchestra, conducted by Charles Shadwell
Dialogue by Aubrey Danvers-WaIker
Produced by Eric Spear

Many things are likely to go wrong at this musical evening of Lady
Brewery-Smythe's. Probably, for instance, the artists she invites will not be as highbrow as she imagines. There should be no disappointment for the listener, nevertheless, whatever the effect on Lady Brewery-Smythe.
One of the guests will be Phyllis Clare, for example, a revue and cabaret star who has not been on the air in this country now for some time. London theatre-goers may remember her in the West-End productions of Here's How, Give Me a Ring, and Ballyhoo, and on the screen she has appeared in many big film productions such as Clive of India, Four Men and a Prayer, While Parents Sleep, and The Last of Mrs. Cheyney.
In the early days of the war she twice went out to France to entertain the troops, on one occasion with Leslie Henson to deputise for Binnie Hale, who had had a motoring accident.

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.
