From ' When Two or Three', page 87

: 'The Musical Switchback'

Mr. PHILIP THORNTON
This novel series will be continued tonight, and Philip Thornton will pursue his contention that every melody in existence, from primitive ages down through mediaeval times to the present day, has always been on the air. He will again give examples of old and new, playing first one and then the other, that listeners themselves may constitute a jury and find his submission proved or otherwise. But they should reserve judgment until this series comes to an end on March 31.

A FIRST-CLASS bill has been assembled for tonight, and listeners are to have the opportunity of welcoming Will Hay back to the microphone after an absence of over two years, for his last broadcast was as long ago as July 31, 1930. In the meanwhile, Hay and his Scholars have been topping the bills all over Britain. Nosmo King, of the black face, is to exchange banter with Hubert again-Hubert as usual changes places with the conductor. It may be new to some to learn that Hubert is in private life Nosmo King's son.
Then Mario de Pietro, an Italian born in Naples, is to entertain with mandoline and banjo solos; this fine musician is equally good on any string instrument, especially the violin and lute. Douglas Vine and Aigy More , who write most of their own material, will give new comedy numbers. And the famous Florrie Forde is backbone in any programme. Apart from her reputation as the world's greatest chorus singer, she was one of the most popular principal boys of her day. Among her great songs i were : ' Anybody here seen Kelly ? ' ' Flanagan ', and ' Down by the Old Bull and Bush'.

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor,
B. WALTON O'DONNELL
OWEN BRYNGWYN (Baritone) THIS suite, as popular for a stringed orchestra as for military band, is arranged for the latter by the composer. The name of Gerrard Williams, which figures so often in programmes for Military Band, as an arranger for that combination of orchestral pieces, belongs to a musician and composer who has done much distinguished work in other fields than that of the Military Band ; in fact, his name often occurs in other sections of the programme pages. He has written a good deal of orchestral work, all of which is distinguished for its very able, subtle, and delicately coloured orchestration. An excellent example of this is a ballad opera entitled Charming Chloe to a libretto by Rodney Bennett, which listeners are quite likely to hear again. He has composed, too, a number of songs of a quality which gives him rank as one of the successful writers of really good songs in recent years.

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.
