'From the Files' 1925-1932

Songs Etcetera from Shows
Written and produced by GORDON MCCONNEL
Bright shows,
Trite shows,
' Only for a night' shows
Some of 'em the right shows,
Some all wrong!
Hired work,
Tired work,
Mingled with inspired work,
Piffle, pathos, padding, then a sound sane song!
Wise cracks
From the wireless hacks
Have a range of a million miles;
Yet blindfold wit
Can't prove a single hit .
On its. way to the well-fed files
Music and Tunes by STANFORD ROBINSON, WOLSELEY CHARLES, LESLIE WOODGATE , FELIX GRANICHSTAEDTEN , JACK ARNOLD , HARRY S. PEPPER, GEORGE BARKER ,
Doris ARNOLD and the AUTHOR

THE QUINTET and THE REVUE CHORUS
Conducted by LESLIE WOODGATE
A RADIO producer looks back and pulls out of the files a miscellany of songs, patter numbers, burlesques, and sketches that show the way light entertainment programmes have grown under his hand in the last seven years. The compere is kept busy giving the context of the various extracts, their date, history, and topical excuse. Listeners with memories will have them pleasantly titillated by revivals of such old forgotten things as ' Nothing Serious,' a song from the first pantomime with stage costume and make-up ;' the burlesque surprise item, in which Mr. Namon Bravado , the visiting film-star, modestly points out the merits of his new film ; The Little Mistake, a farcical musical comedy from the days when such things were funny ; the sketch, Ripe Tomatoes, showing two popular song writers distilling their next ' wow,' and many other pleasant trifles built round the topicalities of yesterday. Listeners who do not remember these things will be given, we hope, further cause to bewail their laggardliness in applying for licences. The distinguished group of artists and collaborators that assists the author-producer with these resurrected revels includes many, such as Jack Arnold , Harry Pepper , George Barker , Horace Percival , Stuart Robertson , Wynne Ajello , and John Armstrong , besides staff stalwarts, who have worked hard in recent years for listeners' delight. Tonight they, and he, take a well-deserved, but not a final, ' curtain.'






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.
