: 'MUSIC WITH A SMILE'

Dobson and Young in the first of a. series of fortnightly talks on music
(by permission of the Manchester Regional Committee of the Central
Advisory Council for Education in the Forces). From a Naval Training Centre in the North-West
TONIGHT the little car in which Walter Dobson and Walter Young carry their gramophone and records will be parked outside a naval training establishment in the North-West. BBC lines will be ' laid on ' too. for the microphone is to eavesdrop on their new series of ' Music With a Smile' lectures which have earned for this famous double-act a big fan mail and a welcome to any Forces establishment anywhere in the British Isles.
Dobson (he talks while Young, one-time electrical technician, puts on the records) believes everyone can enjoy music. He has proved he is right during 3,000 lectures in four years. Often he and Young have met gloomy faces from troops press-ganged to their lecture, but before long everyone is smiling, and often they have to ask their audience for silence so that- they can go on with their lecture illustrations.
It is their informal presentation of music, often streamlined by themselves before" being played, that gets their audiences and makes thel troops glad they came after all. They cannot fail to be fascinated by illustrations of tunes, such as ' Danse Macabre.' which Dobson conveys by using his fingers on the gramophone top.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
