: MANTOVANI

and his Orchestra with Jack Plant
Mantovani, who is English in spite of his Italian name, has been broadcasting for many years now. At eighteen years of age he was leader of the Salon Orchestra at the Metropole Hotel, London, and broadcast from there for six years. He left the Metropole to form his own band at the Monseigneur Restaurant, Piccadilly, and it was thus that his Tipica Orchestra came into being. He so called it because whatever the nationality of the music played, it always sounded typical of the country of hs origin.

: Let's Play The Mouth-Organ

You are invited to join in the fun, and incidentally learn to play the mouth-organ, at Harmonica College with Ronald Chesney as the Master, and Roy Rich as the (unwilling) pupil
Here is another mouth-organ lesson on the radio - Ronald Chesney the teacher and Roy Rich the pupil. The mouth-organ played is one of the cheapest kind, such as anyone and everyone may buy and practice on. It is an instrument especially popular with soldiers because it can slip into their pack so easily. Soldiers by the thousand are listening to these broadcasts and learning how to play it.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
