Jazz Scene


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 Ronnie Scott Club
A series of weekly programmes featuring some of Britain's top jazz artists at Europe's No 1 Jazz Club
Alex Welsh and his Band
Alex Welsh (trumpet-cornet), Roy Williams (trombone), Al Gay, Johnny Barnes (saxophones and clarinets), Fred Hunt (piano), Harvey Weston (bass), Jim Douglas (guitar), Lennie Hastings (drums)
The band has been in existence since 1954 with remarkably few changes of personnel. It has built an enormous reputation accompanying visiting American jazz musicians, and last year Alex and the band were invited to the Newport Jazz Festival in America where they earned rave notices from the critics.
'A band unlike anything we have in the us today - call it mainstream if you will - to me it's jazz in the best sense of the word' (Dan Morgenstern editor, Downbeat magazine)
'One of the most perfectly realised jazz selections that this listener has heard at Newport - or for that matter anywhere!' (John S. Wilson, New York Times)

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.
