: THURSDAY 'POP'

In the Town Hall
The Municipal Orchestra
(under the direction of Hyam Greenbaum ) will render a collection of popular items from their repertoire
Reported by Ted Kavanagh
Produced by Francis Worsley
Summer is at an end. The municipal orchestras will no longer be heard in the Grove Gardens, or the Grotto, but they will be heard in the Town Hall, and that is just as good. The orchestra has a vast repertoire, chiefly of popular classics, and the ticket-collector, Longstick (played by Dick Francis ), is always very discursive about this. Various characters flit in and out of the programme, played by Vera Lennox , Gwen Lewis , and a recent addition-the ever-popular Reginald Purdell.

: 'WE SPEAK FOR OURSELVES'

Lancashire folk
The voice of the Cotton Towns today
Presented by Wilfred Pickles
Arranged and produced by D. G. Bridson
Here is the first of a series of programmes in which the workers of Great Britain can freely express their opinions of the war as they find it. They will be speaking as ' people in the front line '.
Besides individual speakers, groups, singers, and choirs will take part, and they will combine to give some idea of the driving spirit which will have to be crushed before morale can be broken down. It is hoped that a large Lancashire choir will broadcast in this the first of the series.

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.
