: THE LEGGIERO QUINTET

This afternoon the Leggiero Quintet makes its first appearance before the microphone. The members of this Quintet are all well-known broadcasters, both as soloists and members of other light music and chamber music combinations. The Quintet consists of Edward Walker (flute), Reginald Kell (clarinet), Gilbert Vinter (bassoon), Frederick Grinke (violin), and John Cockerill (harp).
Probably the most important person in this Quintet is Gilbert Vinter , who will be responsible for all the special arrangements. It was his own idea to form a specifically broadcasting unit of five virtuosos which would devote itself to light music by the great composers. Vinter, who knows all his colleagues, intimately, scores for each one individually, at the same time calculating his effects in terms of the microphone and not in those of the concert hall.

: MARIUS GORING and LENA ASHWELL in 'THE DARK LADY OF THE SONNETS'

by George Bernard Shaw
Production by Peter Creswell
The Time, fin de siecle 15-1600.
Midsummer night
The Place, on the terrace of the Palace of Whitehall, overlooking the Thames
Cast (in order of speech)
(by permission of Norman Marshall )
In tonight's revival of the Dark Lady of the Sonnets, which was broadcast in April, Lena Ashwell is again taking the part of Queen Elizabeth. She will be remembered by an older generation of playgoers as one of the greatest dramatic actresses the British stage has ever produced.
The part of Shakespeare is to be taken by one of the foremost of our younger actors who recently scored a big personal success as the lead in Satyr at the Shaftesbury. He has played a season at the Old Vic and is one of our few actors to have
.played a season in Paris, in the ' Compagnie des Quinze '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
