: LONDON GYPSY ORCHESTRA

led by Albert Sandler , with Eugenie Safonova
Years of experience-he was leading an orchestra at the Trocadero Restaurant, London, when only seventeen-have made Albert Sandler one of the country's greatest violin virtuosos in light music. For years he played at the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne, and later became musical director of the Park Lane Hotel, London. Shortly after the war began he joined the special BBC Overseas Music Unit under Fred Hartley, and since then has been playing in both Home and Overseas programmes with various combinations-the London Gypsy Orchestra, the London Studio Players, and the Albert Sandler Trio.
Eugenic Safonova was bom in Estonia, and, at an early age, went to Moscow where she studied practically everything that there was to be studied about the Russian theatre—tragedy, comedy, dancing, opera, and acrobatics. She sang in Russia, in France, in Germany, and ultimately met Nikita Balieff and joined his Chauve Souris company with which she played all over the world. After Balieff's death she toured the company herself. She specialises in the singing of Russian and Ukranian folk and gypsy songs and has given many broadcasts with Sandler.

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.
