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.
REGINALD PAUL (Pianoforte)
Conducted by the Rev. ROBERT EATON
THE Birmingham Catholic Choir cameijinto being in the summer of 1923, when tho Catholic
Congress was held in the City. A feature of the Congress was a concert given in the presence of Cardinal Bourne, most of the English Catholic Bishops, and an audience of over two thousand people. It is said that over a thousand more were turned away at the doors. It was felt that the choir, which had been hastily got together for the occasion, should not be allowed to disband. The Choir became a permanent institution when, in the following December, it gave its first concert at the Town Hall. Its average strength is about one hundred singers.

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.
