: GILBERT STACEY and his Sextet

Gilbert Stacey began his musical career as solo chorister at Lichfield Cathedral, and played the organ for services there at the age of thirteen. Later he studied in Paris under D'Indy.
After the last war he became musical director to John Tiller , Max Darewski , Ernest Rolls , Albert de Courville , and other leading managers, and conducted at two Royal Command performances before King
George V. His sextet has broadcast regularly since its formation over three years ago. It consists of three violins, viola, cello, and bass, while Stacey himself plays the piano and is responsible for all the arrangements played.
In the little spare time allowed him by his duties as a member of the War Reserve Police Force he runs a scheme for collecting books for the Forces.

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.

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.
