Few light orchestras are more popular with listeners than Eugene Pini 's Tango Orchestra, which he first formed for broadcasting in 1930 with such success that it has been on the air ever since. Its violinist-conductor is, of course, Eugene Pini himself, who was born in Buenos Aires of French and Scottish parents and is the younger brother of Anthony Pini , the 'cellist.
The combination consists of three violins, 'cello, bass, piano, and piano-accordion, and the orchestra specialises in unusual arrangements of Argentine tangos, violin solos, and light Spanish music. Eugene Pini is always on the look-out for music of this type and is constantly introducing new numbers to listeners. His programmes are famous for novelty and melody alike.

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.
