: The Composer at the Piano: Jack Strachey

Jack Strachey is a well-known composer of light music. Listeners will recall his compositions for the popular monthly revues. He has composed a good deal for the theatre, including several 'hits' for Chariot revues. Recently, in 1934, he wrote the ballet music for the 'Pageant of Parliament', which was presented at the Albert Hall. One of his greatest successes, however, was a song entitled 'These Foolish Things'. Originally he toured in China and Japan with 'The Quaints', a concert party that is still going strong in the Far East.

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.
