THE B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
Personally conducted by JACK PAYNE with ELSIE CARLISLE
THE ordinary jazz-lover who ' falls for' a dance tune must often does not think of remembering the composer's name. But it is enough to recall such haunting tunes as I Wonder Where My Baby is Tonight (who can ever forget Layton and Johnstone's singing of it ?) and That Certain Party, to feel grateful to Mr. Donaldson. Not that Mr. Donaldson has not been rewarded with a very tangible gratitude from a world tliat dances to his music, for it is estimated that his royalties average between £10,000 and £12,000 a year. Listeners who have heard his songs played and sung by every variety of band and singer, good, bad and worse, will welcome this opportunity of hearing them expounded by Jack Payne 's brilliant band and such a talented singer as Elsie Carlisle.

SUMMER in America, with its summer-camps, its fishing-parties in the backwoods, its
' hikes ' and family treks half across the Continent in a ramshackle arc, is a time full of interest for the foreign observer. Mr. S. K. Ratcliffe , who is an English journalist of distinction, has been for some years one of the most popular of lecturers in the United States, and he is well qualified to describe the American manners and modes.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
