: Jack Payne with his Band

In the early Savoy Hill days of radio, Jack Payne was appointed BBC Director of Dance Music, a position he held until 1932, when he made his film début in "Say It With Music" (Jack Jackson, by the way, was then playing in the band). For many years the band has been a star turn on the stage and on gramophone records.
Jack Payne conducts and sometimes sings. He was born in Leamington, Warwickshire, in 1899. It was while he was in the Royal Flying Corps during the War that he organised small dance bands and became interested in dance music generally. He first broadcast regularly from the Hotel Cecil in 1925.

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.
