Torch tunes of the times
Sidney Torch was assistant organist at the Marble Arch Regal, first to Quentin Maclean and then to Reginald Foort. He was appointed organist after the latter left. After spending five years at the Marble Arch theatre from 1929 to 1934, he went to the Edmonton Regal, and was soon heard broadcasting from there.
He left Edmonton and joined
Harold Ramsay for a time, later going to the Gaumont State Cinema, Kilburn, from which he has given so many broadcasts. His signature tune is * I've got to sing a torch song

: Anona Winn and her Winners

From the age of eight Anona Winn could read music quickly, but even in her 'teens her hands were so small that she could never stretch an octave easily. So she gave up the idea of being a pianist, and studied singing at the Albert Street Conservatorium at Melbourne. When Apollo Granforte visited Australia she studied Rigoletto under the famous baritone. Then she ran away and joined a Melbourne company of The Merry Widow. She toured India, came to London, and did a tour with Jose Collins in A Greek Slave. All this experience has gone to make Anona Winn one of the most versatile artists on the air.

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.
