Van Phillips , who has created a record by being on the air with his Dance Band for fifteen weeks in succession, is to create a precedent this evening when he will make history in the jazz world by introducing into his band four French horns. The French horn has always been a particular love of his. It has one of the purest tone colours, he says, in the whole range of orchestral instruments. It is one of the most difficult instruments to play and one of the most difficult to write for.
Tonight's innovation will give
Van Phillips an entirely new section. He does all his own orchestrations, and the sixteen pieces to be heard this evening have been selected expressly for the purpose of exploiting horn tone-colour. If the experiment meets with the approval of listeners, he hopes to make the horn section a permanent feature of his orchestra. It is interesting news that the four French horns are those of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

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.
