: A W.H. Reed Programme

Conducted by The Composer

The Augmented Station Orchestra
Suite Venetienne (Venetian Suite)
Ask any practising musician who 'Willie Reed' is, and he will answer: 'The leader of the London Symphony Orchestra; a first-class violinist; the man who gets up at a moment's notice to conduct anything in the world when a 'star' conductor is ill or has lost his train; the composer of Aesop's Fables, The Lincoln Imp, a Violin Concerto, and other works full of bright ideas and sound musicianship; the director of high musical enterprises round about Croydon'-and so on. He was born in Somersetshire and educated in Cardiff. He can therefore be claimed by both sides of the channel covered by the Cardiff Station.
His Venetian Suite contains four pieces: (1) Approaching Venice; (2) Serenade; (3) Gondola Song; (4) Carnival.

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.
