: Leslie Sarony's Hour ' Tweet-Tweet'

Leslie Sarony enjoys a unique position as a popular comedian of the music-halls, the musical stage, the films, and gramophone records. He is widely known as the writer and singer of 'Rhymes', 'Forty-Seven Ginger-Headed Sailors', 'Ain't it Grand to be Blooming Well Dead', and many other of the most popular songs of recent years. He has written the whole of tonight's show - book, lyrics, and music - and he will also take part himself. He is supported by a very talented company, most of whom have been playing with him in a summer season at Bognor this year. 'Tweet-Tweet', sponsored by such a versatile and successful showman, promises fresh, bright entertainment on very popular lines.

: Music by Sir Frederic Cowen THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

Conducted by THE COMPOSER
Indian Rhapsody
Dance of Gnomes (Suite, In Fairyland)
Excerpts from Suite for Orchestra, The Months

Waltz, Sleeping Beauty
Few programmes can be more popular to the large body of listeners than the programmes of light music devoted to the works of one composer, and of these, none can rival in appeal those devoted to the compositions of Sir Frederic Cowen. Eighty-one at the beginning of this year, Sir Frederic is still as young in spirit as the music which he will direct at this concert with his customary verve. Cowen was a conductor of great distinction before a great many of us were born. His triumphs include the old Promenades in Covent Garden, where he shared the rostrum with Sir Arthur Sullivan. As long as forty-five years ago he held the appointment of Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Society, and he has held similar positions with the Halle Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic, Scottish Orchestra, Handel Festivals, and other important bodies, but it is for his compositions that we regard Sir Frederic Cowen as one of the most distinguished of living British musicians. He has composed a great deal, operas, oratorios, symphonies, and almost every form of composition, including, in particular, the songs which for fifty years have endeared his name to more than one generation of singers.

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.
