Music While You Work

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.
played to you by Thomas Dando at the theatre organ
This fine theatre organist, Lancashire born, has been playing in cinemas since the age of sixteen. He is specially famous in the North where he is known everywhere as Dando.
His signature tune is 'Keep your sunny side up'.
He is renowned everywhere in the cinema world for his remarkable memory and has memorised over 5,000 tunes. Hence he has been called 'The World's Musical Memory Master'. On tour he entertains in the Norman Long manner - a song, a joke, and an organ.
He has broadcast on the BBC Theatre Organ on many occasions and toured the Lou Morris Circuit before succeeding Fredric Bayco at the Tottenham Court Road
Dominion. He is already becoming as well known in London as he has been for years in the North.

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.
