: Join us, by radio, at our weekly Thé Dansant

Dancing this afternoon to Tommy Kinsman and his Band
Tommy Kinsman was born in Liverpool. At the age of thirteen he was working in a cinema as a page boy, and was then promoted to cinema operator. Two thousand feet of film were burnt in an accident, so he decided to join the mercantile
marine. During the war he sailed regularly between England and America, and it was over there that he became interested in the new American Jazz. Demobilised, he joined a local dance band. But a London dance band visited Liverpool, the conductor heard him play, and so Kinsman found himself in the Hammersmith Palais de Danse band, and stayed with them for nearly two years. In 1927 he formed his own band, broadcast from Liverpool, but afterwards met with set-backs. When he gave an audition for Ciro's Club, London, and was engaged, he had only a shilling or two in his pocket. He spent two years there, and two years at the Ritz, and from that time never looked back. He began recording and sending out dance bands. In 1935 he gave his first broadcast from a London studio, and had as his vocalist the now well-known Jack Cooper, whom he discovered in a London store. Tommy Kinsman and his Dance Orchestra are now playing in Madame Tussaud's restaurant. They broadcast the late dance music on December 15.

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.
