Band
The cast includes: Harry Hudson , C. Denier Warren , Fred Gibson ,
John Rorke , Styx Gibling , Sidney Burchall , John Duncan , Steam Scott,
Claude Pilgrim , Reginald Mitchell , Phil Green , Tommy Nichol
Guest artist, Arthur Prince
The BBC Male Voice Chorus and the BBC Variety Orchestra, conducted by Charles Shadwell
Chorus arrangements by Doris Arnold. Orchestrations by Wally Wallond
Produced by the ' Old Salt', Harry S. Pepper
Because Mungo Dewar is an ex-Naval man, served during the last war on the North Atlantic Patrol, learned a sailor's love for a melody, old and new, and met the originals of Shorty and Lofty, and of most of the other characters who appear in Eight Bells, this jolly, rollicking show exudes the genuine atmosphere of a happy ship.
It was broadcast three times to- Northern Ireland in 1932, and first appeared in the National programmes on April 16, three years later. That night Studio BA positively smelt of the briny, with the company dressed up in sailor hats, and the producer, Harry b. Pepper, resplendent in a captain's.
It is not surprising that Styx Gibling-the brilliant drummer of the BBC Variety Orchestra-is so good as Telegraphist William Jenkins , for he served in the Navy as a wireless operator from 1916 to 1923.

: MOZART

String Quartet, in C (K.465)
1 Adagio-Allegro. 2 Andante cantabile. 3 Minuetto (Allegretto).
4 Molto allegro played by the Blech String Quartet-Harry Blech (violin), Edward Silverman (violin), Douglas Thomson (viola), William Pleeth (violoncello)
Mozart's Quartet in C major (K.465) was finished in January, 1785-the last of six quartets which Mozart dedicated to Haydn as a mark of his esteem and affection. The opening slow introduction has caused a great deal of controversy up to modern times, owing to certain ' false relations ' that early commentators considered to be either a mistake on the part of the composer or an oversight in proof-reading. Today, however, we are less ' clever ' in correcting Mozart and are prepared to believe that he knew what he was doing. The effect of these discords lends a certain poignancy to the music, which from the allegro onward* reflects the happiest of moods throughout the four movements.

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.

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.
