A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

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.
OLIVE STURGESS (Soprano)
TOM CLARE (Entertainer)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL UNLIKE the dance tunes of the present day, many of those of a former generation can still be played and enjoyed simply as music, without much thought of the dances for which they were written. The Waltzes of Johann Strauss are -among the best examples of such music, and there are many others scarcely less worthy. Joseph Gung'l, at one time schoolmaster, then a soldier, and latterly a famous bandmaster and composer of marches and dance tunes, left some three hundred pieces, almost all full of delightful tunes andvigorousrhythm,many of which still figure iroin time to time in light and popular programmes. The family tradition was carried on, as it was in the Strauss family; his nephew Johann also composed many popular dance tunes, and, like his uncle, made many successful tours in Europe with them.

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.
