: THE CEDRIC SHARPE SEXTET

The Cedric Sharpe Sextet first broadcast in September, 1931, and since that time its performances have been a popular and regular broadcast feature. The Cedric Sharpe Sextet has also appeared in several British films. The Sextet is so constituted that it is able to play any type of music other than jazz, and the personnel has been chosen primarily because of its experience in quartet playing.
The leader is Edwin Virgo , who plays second violin in the Virtuoso String Quartet. The second violin is Tate Gilder , who is second violin in the Spencer Dyke Quartet. The viola is Raymond Jeremy , who plays for both the Virtuoso and Kutcher Quartets. The 'cellist is, of course, Cedric Sharpe , who is principal 'cello of the London Symphony Orchestra and plays for both the Virtuoso and Spencer Dyke Quar tets. The second 'cello is John Moore of the Stratton Quartet, and the pianist Sidney Crooke , well known in various light music combinations.

: THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harold Fairhurst
Conductor, Richard Austin
Solo violin, Harold Fairhurst
This arrangement of the opening Prelude and the final scene from Tristan and Isolda was sanctioned, and a purely instrumental version actually made, by Wagner himself. Isolda has hastened across the sea to the mortally wounded Tristan, only to witness his death in her arms. She now sings, in the Liebestod, of her longing to follow him into the dark beyond and sinks life-' less across his body.

: R.A.C. INTERNATIONAL LIGHT CAR RACE

Running commentary on the finish of the race from the Isle of Man

Northern listeners will remember' that in the past there were two Manx races-the Mannin Moar (for big cars) and the Mannin Beg (for small ones). Last year, however, these were merged into a single event — the R.A.C. International Light Car Race. It is for cars up to 1,500 c.c. engine capacity, and is run over fifty laps of a four-mile circuit. It has been truly described as a ' round the houses ' event.
In this period listeners will hear the finish of the race. The start and a description of the race in the running were given on North at 1.45 and 3 p.m. respectively.

This is the third edition of Harold Ramsay 's popular ' Radio Rodeos '. The scene is set on a Mexican
Ranch and the local colour is as true to life as maybe, for Harold Ramsay actually owns one. Clapham and Dwyer have become a regular feature of the Rodeos; Beryl Orde is the well-known mimic ; Hal Yates is over here from America, and a great favourite and recording star in the States. With the world-famous American singer, Hildegarde, Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam, Carroll Gibbons , and Carroll and Howe, the programme is as strong as ever. The Eight Step-Sisters were, of course, the original dancers for BBC ' Music-Hails '.

: ' WORDS FAIL ME '

' Have we too many words? '
Leonora Lockhart
Natioh is isolated from nation by barriers due to the existence of more than 1,500 languages. One way of breaking these down is to use a simplified form of our own language with fewer words and far less complicated rules of grammar. Miss Lockhart is Assistant Director of the Orthological Institute, where she has worked for some years with C. K. Ogden. She will illustrate the talk with gramophone records.

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.
