Conductor, Sir DAN GODFREY
GERRARD WILLIAMS was originally an architect by profession, and music was no more than an enthusiastic hobby until he wus over thirty. Since then he has devoted himself to composition and has won many successes. Largely self-taught, he has evolved a style which is very much his own, although there is nothing in his music of that ultra-modern order which makes it difficult to understand and enjoy. It is mostly characterised by sturdy rhythm and is all wholesome, virile music. He is equally at home with the ordinary concert orchestra or with tho Military Band, and the literature for this latter somewhat neglected combination is richer within the last year or two by more than one interesting work of his, and by many effective arrangements. Among the more important of his own works which have already been broadcast are the Ballad opera, Charming Chloe, the operetta, The Tale of a Shoe, as well as a suite made up from it, and a fine example of his chamber music, his second String Quartet.

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.
