THE BATH GUITAR OCTET

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.
The Bath Guitar Octet was formed recently from the Original Bath Banjo Band of 1908 in which the Director, Frances Tarrant Bailey , was at that time piccolo banjoist. In 1918 she took up the study of the Hawaiian Steel Guitar, and listeners have heard her solo broadcasts with this instrument. The Hawaiian Steel Guitar which she uses is a genuine native instrument differing very largely in tone and construction from the instruments normally used and converted for use as steel guitars by the adaptation ot special fittings. The object of forming the Octet was to prove that, given suitable scores, a combination of stet-l guitars could give a performance of works not necessarily associated with the South Sea Islands.

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.
