THOMAS DANDO

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.
at the organ of the Granada, North Cheam
Thomas Dando 's well known signature tune, ' Keep Your Sunny Side Up ', has been recognised by cinema organist enthusiasts all over the country for years. It is, however, probably best known in the North of England where this Lancashire-born musician, who claims to have memorised over five thousand tunes, recently completed an eight-months' engagement with the Gaumont Cinema, Manchester.
Now Dando is playing in London again
-he was resident organist at the Dominion, Tottenham Court Road. until that theatre was forced to close temporarily by enemy action.
This morning Dando gives the first performance of Lloyd Thomas's new march, ' Silver Wings ', a work composed after this brother organist of Dando's joined the R.A.F.

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.
