Conducted by Reginald Redman from the Colston Hall , Bristol
This is one of the regular series of choral and orchestral concerts to be broadcast during the autumn and spring from the Colston Hall, Bristol. The series began on September 19.
The Colston Hall is one of the largest buildings of its kind in the country, the seating capacity being about 4,000. It stands on the site of the Carmelite Friary, afterwards known as the Great House. Edward Colston , an eighteenth-century philanthropist, bought the Great House in 1709, and established a hospital. At a later date it became Colston School under the government of the Society of Merchant Venturers.
Upon the removal of the School to Stapleton, the Great House with its site was bought by a few public-spirited citizens, and a hall was opened in 1867.

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.
