: JAZZ CLUB

invites the London Jazz Club to present today's session with their resident group
Humphrey Lyttelton and his Band and their own guests
Introduced by Lord Donegall
Produced by Johnnie Stewart
It is a good sign for jazz lovers to find that jazz and rhythm clubs are springing up all over the country. They are formed in order to bring together young people who have certain musical interests in common.
Jazz Club periodically invites one of these clubs to come to the studio and present a programme of their own choosmg. This week the London Jazz Club has been invited to present a half-hour broadcast along these lines. Its members are bringing their own resident group, Humphrey Lyttelton and his Band, and are also inviting one or two guest musicians as soloists, or to 'sit in ' with their own outfit.
In order to reproduce something of the atmosphere of the club, the audience will consist entirely of the club's own members and guests, and there will be dancing in the studio while the broadcast is on the air. Johnnie Stewart

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.
