: WHO'S WHO IN LIGHT MUSIC

2-Rae Jenkins
The story of Rae Jenkins is as romantic a success story as any you could wish for. When he was fourteen years old he was working in a coal mine, opening and shutting the door of a gallery in order to allow the trucks to pass through. At the same time he utilised every spare moment to study harmony, scribbling with chalk on lumps of coal and rock. At sixteen he visited London and went to his first symphony concert at Queen's Hall. Two years later, after having persuaded his parents to let him study music, he was playing in Sir Henry Wood 's Queen's Hall Orchestra. Since then Rae has never looked back. He has broadcast scores of times with dance bands and light combinations, for the ' Foundations of Music ' series, and for innumerable Variety shows. He is now Director of the Casino Orchestra, and, in consequence, one of the maestros of broadcast light 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.

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.
