Music-Course 2 Continuation Course 6 The Term's Experience '


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Thomas ARMSTRONG , D.Mus.
The idea of inviting school-children to compose tunes and send them in was originated by Sir Walford Davies , and I when Dr. Armstrong took over this s course from him eighteen months ago he decided to carry the idea on. Both Dr. Armstrong and the musicians who come to illustrate the lessons are astonished at the imagination and ability these little compositions show, and Dr. Armstrong would pay a tribute to the stimulating and musicianly work done by the teachers themselves at many of the schools.
Dr. Armstrong was organist at
Exeter Cathedral for nearly six years before he went to Christ Church, Oxford. He has often broadcast, of course, from both cathedrals, and is to broadcast from Oxford on December 28. He is conductor of the Oxford Bach Choir of 450 singers, a good many of them undergraduates. Dr. Armstrong gave a series of talks on English music two years ago.

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.
