: PERCIVAL MACKEY

and his Sophisticated Players with Monti Ryan , Janet Lind , and Fred Latham
For his broadcast this evening, Percival Mackey , who is conducting the London Symphony Orchestra for the film round the life story of Leslie Stuart called Do You Remember ?, is using an entirely new mystery combination of eleven performers. In style it will be melodious and rhythmic, and its unusualness will lie in the fact that although it is a rhythmic ensemble, yet it has none of the regular features of dance combinations, such as sax or brass sections. Neither does it employ piano, drums, or accordion.
The vocalists are all well-known broadcasters. Monti Ryan will be remembered for her frequent appearances in television before the war.

: THE BBC RHYTHM CLUB

presents its introductory programme
' This Swing Business '
Charles Chilton will try to explain something about it and play you some records
Here is the first of a new series that will give free rein to rhythm of all kinds during the weeks to come. * Kings of Jazz ' has now come to an end, though from time to time this or that ' king' will appear in the ' Rhythm Club' programmes. The broadcasts will be infinitely varied in scope. One week you may hear hot trumpet playing, the next straightforward recordings of a famous dance orchestra. Well-known jazz singers will come to the ' Club ' on records, and soloists of every kind will give of their best.
Charles Chilton will introduce the Club tonight, and explain what it is all about. Next week you will hear a recording of a swing broadcast in the United States.

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.
