FRED HARTLEYAND HIS SEXTET

Synopsis

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.
with Brian Lawrance Listeners will have noticed that Fred
Hartley has increased his ensemble to a Sextet. The reason for this change is entirely an economic one. Mr. Hartley had always found it extremely difficult to secure a first-rate musician who was equally at home on the viola, clarinet, and the saxophone and capable of playing difficult parts on any of these instruments. Therefore he at last decided that the easiest way out of the difficulty was to increase the Quintet to a Sextet and engage a separate viola player and a saxophonist doubling on the clarinet. The members of the Sextet are all capable of playing equally well a string quartet or a foxtrot.

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.
