: DANCING THROUGH

A non-stop review of popular melodies through the years with Geraldo and his Concert
Orchestra
Surelv no broadcaster has made a series so peculiarly his own or so peculiarly successful as has Geraldo with ' Dancing Through '. The first programme he gave was as long ago as April, 1934. From that time to this he has put ' Dancing Through' on the air with increasing popularity, and there seems to be no limit to the number of tunes he can play within a given time. Hall-mark broadcasts in the series ' Dancing Through ' were in 1935, in honour of King George Y's Silver Jubilee, and in 1937, in honour of George VI's Coronation. In this feature Geraldo has put up the astonishing records of 200 numbers a broadcast at the rate of 22 tunes a minute, which hardly seems believable.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
