Jackie Hunter and Sid' Bright
Sidney Bright , who is Geraldo's twin brother, is an old hand Jit the microphone in this country. His opposite number is a comparative newcomer.
Bright is one of the most accomplished dance-band pianists of the day. Jackie Hunter came across the Atlantic to London to look for a job in 1935. Within a very few days he was introduced to Jack Jackson with whom he worked for six years. He was recently one of the pillars of the Askey-Desmond series ' Big Time '. which served to introduce him to a wide circle of radio friends.

: LONDON SUMMER CONCERTS

Under the auspices of Allied Governments. Organised by the Royal Philharmonic Society. Fifth concert: London Philharmonic Orchestra (leader, Reginald Morley ) and the Polish Army Choir, conducted by Basil Cameron
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
When the Polish Army was re-formed in this country, after Poland came under German occupation, there was a surplus of officers in many of the camps, and at one of them the officers decided to form themselves into a choir. They started with twenty to thirty singers under their conductor George Kolaczkowski , who was Music Director of the broadcasting station at Lwow, but they now number over fifty. Their first concert was given in August
.1940 and since then they have sung at over 300 concerts all over Great Britain and have collected more tftan £ 10.000 for distribution to Bfitish and Polish charities.
Their repertoire does not consist entirely of Polish songs ; as a compliment to Scotland they have learned many Scottish songs, such as Loch Lomond
'Annie Laurie ', ', and ' Duncan Gray

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.
