Reginald Foort at the BBC Theatre Organ with Alfredo Campoli
George Melachrino
Ivor Dennis
Also in St. George's Hall to give Reginald Foort a good send-off are
The Director of Variety and The Chief Announcer
During his two years as BBC Staff Theatre Organist Reginald Foort has given 405 broadcasts, either solo or with other artists, to Home and Empire. He has introduced 72 guest organists to the BBC Theatre Organ and has put on many popular shows, such as ' Rhythm Music', ' The Organ, the Dance Band, and Me ', Radio Song Sheets', and such novelty shows as ' My Dream Garden ', ' Musical ABC ', ' Fan-Mail Favourites ', and ' Melodies of the Moment'.
Foort, who claims that these two years have been the happiest and busiest of his life, is looking forward to broadcasting quite frequently in the future, both on the BBC Theatre Organ and on his new travelling organ. So that although he is bidding an official farewell tonight, he will be. keeping well in touch with all his radio friends.

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.
