The Westminster Abbey Choir has sung during the greatest occasions of Church and State for more than 900 years - at the funerals of statesmen, at the Coronations of our Kings and Queens. In this programme the choir sings music by composers who have helped make the Abbey's choral tradition, who have held the traditional title ' Organist and Master of the Choristers.' Moira Shearer introduces tonight's programme from Westminster Abbey in which the present Abbey Choir pays a musical tribute to nearly a thousand years of music making.

: Omnibus File: British Jazz

Pub entertainment, serious art form or simply an excuse for letting off steam? British Jazz has served all these purposes during its 50-odd years. Today the music's fragmented; different styles coexist, each with its own heroes and devotees. Including
Trombonist George Chisholm, one of the first British musicians to gain an international reputation, with the Alex Welsh band.
The Humphrey Lyttelton band of the early 50s reconstituted to play for jiving at the 100 Club in Oxford Street.
The Bebop Preservation Society at the Bull's Head in Barnes.
Alexis Korner and friends play and talk about 'rhythm 'n' blues.' Iskra 1903, whose music overlaps with the experiments of the classical avant-garde.
Ian Carr's Nucleus, who have extended the vocabulary of jazz by using the sounds and rhythms of rock music.
Also appearing Benny Green, George Melly, Ken Colyer and Charles Fox

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.

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.
