: Heather Bells

Arthur Wood, born at Heckmondwike in 1875, has spent many years in conducting orchestras - at first, as deputy, that of the Harrogate Corporation, and then, as chief, at various London theatres, particularly the Shaftesbury, the Gaiety, and Daly's. He became Musical Director at His Majesty's in 1927. He has written the music for several musical comedies and revues, and also a number of orchestral pieces, of which the Three Dale Dances are amongst the best known.
The four pieces in this Suite are entitled: (1) Knaresboro' Status; (2) Ilkley Tarn; (3) Bollon Abbey; and (4) Barwick Green.
A Status in Yorkshire is a hiring fair, at which the farm lads and lasses stand about the marketplace to receive offers of engagements for the following year. Ilkley Tarn is on the moor of which John Henry sings. Bolton Abbey, celebrated in more than one poem of Wordsworth, holds memories of twelfth-century Augustinians, and Barwick is a very pleasant village in the West Riding.

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.
