Felton Rapley was a chorister at Winchester Cathedral and received his musical training from Dr. Prendergast, its famous organist, to whom he was pupil assistant for three years. During that period, at the age of thirteen, he was appointed organist at Hursley Parish Church (John Keble's parish church) in Hampshire.
When he was seventeen he entered the cinema industry. He has held positions as organist at the Poole Regent, the Maidenhead Plaza, and the Hanley Regent, from which he gave a series of broadcasts nine years ago. In December, 1935, he was appointed to the Birmingham Gaumont Palace.

The story and the music presented with the aid of gramophone records by Harold Grace
Fifty years ago opera-goers in Rome gteeted with enthusiastic applause the first performance of a new opera by an obscure young composer. It was the one-act opera Cavalleria Rusticana. Its composer. Mascagni, awoke next morning to find himself famous. Its haunting melodies have fascinated audiences all over the world and today it remains one of the mainstays of all repertory companies.

: ' Top of the Bill ' CHARLIE KUNZ

Radio's wizard of the piano
The popular pianist, Charlie Kunz , had his own band at the Chez Henri Club for three or four years before going to Casani's and becoming famous. In the days when listeners filled the columns of ' What the Other Listener Thinks ' with passionate letters naming their favourite dance band, Charlie's name appeared as often as any.
When Casani's closed down a few years ago, he branched out on his own as a single act on the halls. In this evening's programme he will have rhythm accompaniment-string, bass, guitar, and drums-as he does when recording.

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.
