Relayed to Daventry
THE STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE names of almost all these B.B.C. Composers are very well known to listeners. Some of them are prominent in executive capacities. Mr. Pitt, of course, is the general Musical Director of the B.B.C., and Mr. Ansell, long familiar to Londoners as the Conductor of various theatre Orchestras, has during the past year become still more widely known as Musical Director of the London Station. Sir Walford Davies , whose voice is heard every week in thousands of schools and homes, was during the war Organizing Director of Music to the Royal Air Force, and wrote its official March.
Mr. Stanton Jefferies is largely concerned with the intricate matters of control and balance in the choral and orchestral forces engaged in broadcast concerts all over the country, work that demands both musical and engineering knowledge. Mr. Gerrard Williams , whose charming songs and other music we know already, has only recently joined the B.B.C. Mr. Dallaway at the Birmingham Station has played a number of very interesting Pianoforte Concertos, some of them not very frequently heard. Mr. Robert Chignell was a notable pupil at the R.C.M. for both singing and composition. His hand is to be found in many of the re-arrangements and re-scorings of music from time to time necessitated by the very diverse demands of the B.B.C.
Miss Dorothea Barcroft , who is a member of the Birmingham Station staff, put into her African Suite some lecollections of scenes and songs gathered during a stay in East Africa.

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.
