: 'HAWAIIAN LEI

Story of an old Hawaiian custom told with gramophone records. Written and arranged by A. P. Sharpe
Listeners to A. P. Sharpe 's programmes about fretted instruments need scarcely be told that this broadcaster is one of the greatest authorities on the fretted instrument in the world. Starting in a small way some eight years ago, Sharpe has amassed a formidable collection of fretted instrument records of which he now has some thousands. These recordings are not only of such well-known instruments as the banjo, mandolin, and guitar, but also of such less familiar members of the tribe as the bandurria and the octochorda.

: ' INDUSTRY ENTERTAINS'

War-workers in the converted motor industry of the Midlands bring their united talent to the microphone before an audience of their fellow-workers
Since the war a great deal of natural entertainment talent has, of necessity, been absorbed in the big industries. Much of this talent has been heard in broadcasts from shipyard and factory. Nevertheless, there is always room for more, so that this revival of ' Industry Entertains ' should prove a welcome one. ' Industry Entertains' was a well-known feature on the Midland programme before the war, most of the worker-stars performing in factory canteens.
The canteen idea is being continued in these new Industry Entertains ' programmes ; some of the works represented in this afternoon's programme have been adapted from peacetime to wartime production.

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.
