: WYNFORD REYNOLDS

and his Orchestra
Tunes of the times
Wynford Reynolds was born in Ebbw Vale, Monmouthshire, studied music as a child, and always wanted to play the violin. It was not until after the last war that he took up music seriously. He won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, and studied there for six years.
In 1922 he joined the original
Queen's Hall Orchestra, and in 1929 he formed the Wynford Reynolds Octet with which he began broadcasting in 1934. His signature tune, ' A Cocktail of Happiness ', has sold over five thousand copies. He also frequently broadcasts with other combinations.

: IIkeston Co-operative MALE VOICE CHOIR

Conductor, Fred Buxton
What can be done by enthusiastic music-making on the part of amateurs is well illustrated by the story of the evolution of the Ilkeston -Male
Voice Choir. It started as a choral class under the auspices of the Derbyshire Education Committee and at the close of its course became a permanent choir.
It contributed a year ago to a radio programme called ' Running your own Show '.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C) led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Richard Austin
Completed in 1918 and published in 1922, 'A Song before Sunrise' is inscribed by the composer ' For Philip Heseltine who is better known to listeners under the name he adopted as a composer. Peter Warlock.
Scored for a small orchestra of woodwind, two horns, and strings, it begins with a fresh, happy melody given chiefly to the strings, with little snatches of tune on the woodwind breaking in on it. Throughout the music is eloquent of its title in Delius's picturesque way.

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.

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.
