: 'TWO'S COMPANY'

Arthur Dulay Quintet
The Arthur Dulay Quintet, one of the most popular light-music combinations in broadcasting, consists of two violins, viola, and cello, with Arthur Dulay himself at the piano.
Dulay began his career as a pianist and also lectured on musical appreciation for the London County
Council for two and a half years. Soon he became a cinema pianist, when he gained the distinction of being the first musical director in this country to compose a complete score for a silent picture. He formed his Quintet in 1935 and has been broadcasting regularly with it ever since.

: SYDNEY KYTE'S RHYTHM AUCTION

Auctioneer, Sutherland Felce
From 1931 to 1936 Sydney Kyte entertained listeners and fashionable London with his dance orchestra at the Piccadilly Hotel. He then toured the country, only returning to London to play at the Carlton for the Coronation festivities. His tour was finally cut short by the outbreak of war. At a day's notice, he responded to an urgent message from the Mayfair, and helped to relieve the gloom of London in the days when the theatres and cinemas were shut.
His signature tune, ' Tune in, keep listening', was sent to him as an ordinary number by the composer and librettist, who signed their names Harry Pepper and John Watt. It was too good to miss.

Stanley Tudor , twenty-nine years of age, was born in Stoke-on-Trent, played the church organ before he was nine, won many prizes for piano-playing and began his cinema career fourteen years ago in the days of silent films, as pianist at the Capitol, Hanley. When he was sixteen he joined Gaumont-British, being appointed organist at the Hippodrome, Stoke.
His signature tune, ' Singing in the Rain ', is dedicated to the three weeks' downpour which greeted his arrival in Manchester for the opening of the Gaumont Theatre in October, 1935.

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.
