: EUGENE PINI AND HIS TANGO Ⓓ ORCHESTRA

with DIANA CLARE
Few light orchestras are more popular with listeners than Eugene Pini 's Tango Orchestra, which he first formed for broadcasting in 1930 with such success that it has been on the air ever since. Its violinist-conductor is, of course, Eugene Pini himself, who was born in Buenos Aires of French and Scottish parents and is the younger brother of Anthony Pini , the 'cellist.
The combination consists of three violins, 'cello, bass, piano, and piano-accordion, and the orchestra specialises in unusual arrangements of Argentine tangos, violin solos, and light Spanish music. Eugene Pini is always on the look-out for music of this type and is constantly introducing new numbers to listeners. His programmes are famous for novelty and melody alike.
His vocalist for the ]ast two years has been Diana Clare who, already famous on the air as the serious artist Esther Coleman , made her debut in cabaret and made another name in a night.

: CALLENDER'S SENIOR BAND

Conductor, TOM MORGAN
Until recently the repertoire of the brass band consisted, for the most part, of music of poor quality, but of late years, owing to the enterprise of such bands as the Crystal Palace Band and Callender's Band, composers have been encouraged not only to write original works, but to make artistic transcriptions of fine music, as instanced by the present programme.
The BBC has done much to further the interests of the brass band and it is its intention to do more in the future to enable listeners to hear the best bands in programmes consisting of original works and first rate transcriptions of rarely heard music.

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.

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.
