: GRAND CONCERT

for members of H.M. Forces
(with their sweethearts and wives) given by Dennis Noble (baritone)
Eileen Joyce (piano)
BBC Chorus
(Chorus Master: Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Orchestra
(60 players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Introduced by Lionel Gamlin
From a West-Country toncert hall
This concert represents the first of a new series of fortnightly public orchestral concerts, the programmes of which are essentially popular in appeal. The present one opens with Herold's Overture ' Zampa' and ends with Edward German 's march ' The Men of Harlech' from the Welsh Rhapsody. An item of exceptional interest will be to hear the BBC Orchestra with the BBC Chorus perform that ever-popular waltz Wine, Women, and Song' by Johann Strauss.
Each concert will be introduced by that best of comperes, Lionel Gamlin , who became celebrated for his personal touch in announcing and compering such winners as ' In Town Tonight ', ' Puzzle Corner ', and ' Music-Hail '. Gamlin, who is so cheery, so human and informal, will surely shine in a new line when he makes his debut today in the world of broadcast music.

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.
