Orchestra with Eve
Becke Gerry Fitzgerald
Guest Artist, Tod Duncan
Presented by Douglas Lawrence
Orchestral arrangements by Peter YorKe
Louis Levy is well known to radio listeners through his successful Music from the Movies' broadcasts, and to filmgoers because he has been responsible for all the music for Gaumont-Bntish and Gainsborough pictures since 1928, when he recorded the music for Gaumont's first talkie, High Treason. He has just signed a contract to record the special music by Honegger, the famous Swiss composer, for the film Pygmalion, and also a contract to record the music for The Citadel. And he will be recording the music for both the' new
Tom Walls and Max Miller pictures.
Louis Levy first broadcast in 1924 from the Shepherd's Bush Pavilion. He has been musical director for all Jessie Matthews 's films, and last week introduced her as his guest artist in the first of this series of his radio productions. These productions, to be broadcast weekly, will be of the individual character associated with Louis Levy and Peter Yorke , who does all the orchestrations. Listeners will welcome today's guest artist, Tod Duncan , who played the lead in the recent Drury Lane production, The Sun Never Sets.

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.
