: NELSON ELMS

at the theatre organ
Movie memories
Popular melodies on parade
Nelson Elms must be the tallest broadcasting organist in the country, for he measures six feet seven inches. His signature tune is ' Trees '—the inference being that elms are more popular than other trees.
He first broadcast at the Leeds
Ritz in 1935, and has since broadcast from cinemas all over the country. He has played dance music on a large four-manual concert organ at Wallasey Town Hall for a charity ball, and at Leeds Town Hall accompanied community singing for a boxing tournament. But perhaps his strangest experience was at the Clapham Junction Granada, where a circus was appearing on the stage during the week that he was playing there. Throughout his broadcast one of the tigers persisted in pacing up and down in its cage, stopping only to growl at him.

: HAYDN

Quartet in F, Op. 77, No. 2 played by the Spencer Dyke Quartet -Spencer Dyke (violin), Edwin Virgo (violin), Winifred Copperwheat
(viola), Cedric Sharpe (cello)
The two Quartets Op. 77 are the last of Haydn's large output in this form, with the exception of an unfinished quartet in B flat. Composed in 1799 and dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz, the distinguished amateur musician and patron of Beethoven, they represent Haydn's crowning achievement in chamber music. In spite of the fact that they are so perfectly written for four stringed instruments, these quartets were originally composed as sonatas for piano and violin, or flute.

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.

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