and his Apache Band with Clare Francis
Like so many other exponents of light. music Lionel Falkman had a classical training. His parents made sacrifices so that he could study the violin under Leopold Auer and Kalman Ronay , and at the age of seventeen he was musician enough to be first violin in the New Symphony Orchestra under Landon Ronald and first violin in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
His Apache Band specialises in the music typical of the Montmartre of happier days.

: 'SHE SHALL HAVE MUSIC

The players, Fred Hartley and his
Music
The singers, David Lloyd and others
Presented by Doris Arnold
When a new series with such an attractive title is presented by the deviser and compere of ' These you have loved ', it is surely ensured of success. Doris Arnold once again will compere, and her idea now is to present a request programme made up of songs featuring the names of girls. 'Who is Sylvia ? ', 'Her name is Mary'—that kind of thing. Those of you who would like to hear a song round the name of your particular girl friend, or to have a song broadcast to her, if she has a very unusual name, should send a postcard to Doris Arnold , Broadcasting House, Bristol.
Each week, by the way, there will be a selection from a musical comedy named after a girl, such' as Sally, Irene, Betty. Can you think of some more?

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.
