: Band of the RIFLE BRIGADE OF THE POLISH ARMY

Conductor, Lieut. M. Kleszynski. Presented by Lieut. L. Notowicz and Denis Wright
Among the armies of the occupied countries who are at present serving in Britain there are, naturally enough, a good number of talented musicians. Many listeners assured themselves of that when they heard the Czechoslovak Band broadcast about a fortnight ago. ;rhe band you will hear tonight is drawn from Polish troops in Britain. In civil life these men are of varied occupations-tradesmen, clerks, teachers, policemen, though their conductor is a trained musician, and has arranged all the music that his band plays.

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.
