: YOUR FAVOURITE'SONGS

sung by Olive Groves (soprano)
Olive Groves won a pianoforte scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of sixteen, and when she left won the annual prize for the most distinguished student. She made her professional debut in Cologne with a juvenile concert party organised by her mother for the entertainment of the Army on the Rhine. Her first microphone appearance, in April, 1926, was the result of a chance meeting with a BBC official who remembered hearing her sing in Cologne ; since that date she has been a very popular broadcaster.

: BAXENDALE'S WORKS BAND

Conductor, Leonard Davies
Like most other organisations, the ranks of the brass bands have been depleted by the demands upon players for military service and other works of national importance. Nearly a year ago when they were on the air, they were hoping to keep the flag flying as long as possible. And here they are, broadcasting again.
This band had the bad luck to be formed in 1913 and ceased its activities when most of its members a year later were called to the Colours. It was re-started in 1920 and soon won its way to the front rank of the brass band world. All its instrumentalists are employees of the firm. Bandmaster Leonard Davies. for instance. is a ledger clerk

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.
