: BREAK FOR MUSIC

ENSA concert for war-workers, from a factory canteen. Oscar Rabin and his Band, with Harry Davis , featuring Terry Devon and the Hi-Spots. Guest artist, ' Hutch '
Oscar Rabin and Harry Davis have just celebrated their twentieth year of partnership as directors of Oscar Rabin 's Band. Years ago Davis set out to specialise in the work of dance-band presentation, which has resulted in his being acclaimed as one of the best men at this job in the country. He has an agreement with Rabin that should either partner die before the other, the widow of that partner takes his place; while the other maje partner makes himself responsible for the general welfare of the other family.
Rabin is notable for his self-effacing leadership, for he sits playing his saxophone, with the other insrrumentalistsrarely standing before them on the conductor's rostrum.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
