: This Question of Pressures: 3: The Aluminium Affair

: Jazz Scene

at the Ronnie Scott Club
A weekly series featuring some of Britain's top jazz artists at Europe's No 1 Jazz Club
Tonight: Salena Jones with The Guitar Sound
Judd Proctor (guitar), George Kisch (guitar), Martin Kershaw (guitar), Ike Isaacs (guitar), David Snell (harp), Alan Branscombe (vibes), Spike Heatley (bass), John Marshall (drums), Peter Ahearne (Latin percussion)

It is appropriate that Salena Jones features in this programme tonight, as it was here at the Ronnie Scott Club that she first drew the attention of the critics which subsequently established her as one of Europe's leading jazz singers.
Accompanying her tonight is a unique musical combination of guitars, harp, and percussion specially written for this programme by her musical director, Keith Mansfield. Incidentally, it is interesting to note that Salena Jones hails from Newport News, Virginia, the birthplace of two other great jazz singers, Ella Fitzgerald and Pearl Bailey.

: Premiere: The Sound of Anger

Written by Dick Nelson
starring Burl Ives, Guy Stockwell, James Farentino and Dorothy Provine

Two brothers, sons of a famous lawyer father and following in his footsteps, take on a murder case and find themselves at odds not only with their client but also with the co-defendant's highly unorthodox counsel.
This week's story in the season of new television films made in America and never before seen in this country, The Sound of Anger was conceived, written, and produced by one of American television's foremost producers, Roy Huggins. He produced Maverick (which won his an Emmy), he created The Fugitive, and was executive producer of Run for Your Life.

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.
