: BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Edward Armstrong)
Conductor, Rudolf Schwarz
From the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth
Fifty-seven years ago the inhabitants of Bournemouth demanded musical entertainment, and a band of sixteen uniformed musicians was formed, all ex-members of the Italian army. In 1893, with a municipal orchestra of thirty performers under Major Dan Godfrey , came the real debut in front of an audience of 'five thousand. Dan Godfrey was the son of Lieutenant Dan Godfrey of the Grenadier Guards, the first army bandmaster to be commissioned, and it was under him that the series of symphony concerts began. Sir Dan Godfrey , as he then became, retired in 1934 handing over to Richard Austin. Montague Birch carried on with a reduced orchestra during the difficult wartime period, and now under Rudolf Schwarz the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra takes its place as one of the finest in Britain, havmg made Bournemouth a recognised centre of British music and British composers.

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.
