: Music While You Work

Jack Simpson and his Sextet
The first twelve years of Jack Simpson 's musical career were spent in the Army. At the age of fifteen he joined the Royal
Dragoons, and became the Army's youngest mounted drummer. While in hospital after a motor smash he taught himself to play the guitar. On being released from hospital he went back to military service, this time in the Horse Guards. He was a member of the Horse Guards Band, and was at the same time drum master at Eton College.
Simpson left the Army in 1932, and immediately joined the late Al Davidson who ran two bands. Thereafter Simpson has played drums and xylophone with most of the famous dance-band leaders of the country. Just before the war he formed his Sextet which consists of two guitars, violin, accordion, bass, with himself doubling marimba and xylophone.

: ' UNUSUALLY YOURS '

John Rorke , with Ivor Dennis , as usual, at the piano
With his flair for old songs, rousing songs, chorus songs, John Rorke is likely to be as ' unusually yours ' as. ever this afternoon. Revue, musical comedy, single acts, double acts, all -come alike to him. Perhaps one of his greatest successes on the air was in the series Old Music-Halls' '. This success Rorke shared with Denis O'Neil , Tessa Deane , and Bertha Willmott , in a series that began in 1933, ran through the whole of 1934, and was revived the following year.

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.
