: EUGENE PINI

and his Tango Orchestra with Dorothy Carless
' Getting Sentimental'
Few light orchestras are more popular with listeners than Eugene Pini 's Tango Orchestra, which he first formed for broadcasting in 1930, with such success that it has been on the air ever since. Perhaps his sympathy with tango music springs from the associations of his childhood. He was born in Buenos Aires and spent the first six years of his life in South America. Then his parents brought him to England, and at thirteen he was given the offer of studying music or engineering. Dorothy Carless is his wife.

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.
