ARTHUR SALISBURY AND HIS ORCHESTRA

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.
from the Savoy Hotel, London
Arthur Salisbury started to learn the violin when seven and a half years old. He studied under Senor Gomez and Professor Melzak until he was fifteen, when he passed through the Royal Academy of Music with distinction. After the war he continued to study under Melzak. In 1920 he met de Groot, became his leader, and stayed with him for six years. This introduced him to restaurant work, particularly through the Piccadilly Hotel.
Salisbury formed his six-piece light orchestra, and opened at Verrey's Restaurant, Regent Street, where he remained for three years, giving a broadcast almost every week. He ultimately moved to the Savoy, where he has been for the last nine years.

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.
