The Valve Set Concert Party.
The Station Orchestra
"The Valve Set has been overhauled, the batteries recharged.
The wander plug has wandered home, the aerial's been enlarged.
You'll hear them sing some solos and some duets up to date.
In fact they'll do all sorts of things but never oscillate.
There's Zincite and Molybdenite-one bright and one pathetic
And stories told-some tall, some short-by Galena (synthetic).
The various other crystals to their feelings will give vent
A funny combination but they're funny with intent!
At nine o'clock or thereabouts-without the least deception
The Station Band at our demand will give you your reception:-

March, "Great Big David" Lotter
Suite, "Gabrielle" Rosse
(1) Pizzicato; (2) Minuet; (3) Valse Romance; (4) Patrol.
Menuet .................... Moszkowski
Selection, "II Trovatore" ...... Verdi

A half an hour of music light and then our merry men, Sir,
Will try to tune to get the moon and waggle their condenser.
And thus we'll let them carry on and amplify our views.
Until we switch on '2LO' and hear the current news".

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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 programmes, online etc.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
