: WILLIE WALKER OCTET

It has always been Willie Walker's ambition to form a combination consisting entirely of virtuosos, and this has been amply realised in the case of his Octet. Walker himself started to learn the clarinet when a little child of seven in Newcastle. After holding positions as musical director in a Newcastle cinema and restaurant he joined Debroy Somers and later Geraldo. He formed his own combination in 1936, since when it has been heard regularly on the air.

Arranged and presented by Victor Smythe
Here is a new type of Variety entertainment in which all the artists are doing work of national importance-though in very different spheres.
The stage will be represented by Teddy Williams, the well-known Yorkshire comedian, and Tony Heaton. The munition workers will be represented by a girl vocalist, who recently sang in one of Victor Smythe's 'Works Wonders' programmes, and also by a munition workers' band, which was on the air during the same concert. The Services will be represented by on aircraftman of the R.A.F. and by a member of the 'Amponians' band.

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.
