: Kenneth Bygott

at the BBC Theatre Organ
Kenneth Bygott made his first appearance in public as a pianist at the age of eleven. He began studying the church organ when he was fourteen, and held his first church appointment a year later.
In 1926 he first became a cinema organist, and was appointed solo organist at St. George's Hall, Bradford, where he stayed for four years.
From 1930 to 1934 he was at the New Victoria Cinema, Bradford, and was then transferred to the Regent Cinema, Bournemouth, where he still is. Thus he has done nearly twelve years' service with the Gaumont-British circuit.
He first broadcast as a pianist and an 'uncle' from the old Leeds studios about, twelve years ago.

Tonight in commemoration of the year in which he made his concert debut in Dublin, John McCormack will come to the microphone for his first studio broadcast. Just over a week ago he finished his formal tour with a concert at the Albert Hall. 1903 may be held as the year in which the new century, with all its implications, began to get into its stride. King Edward made his historic tour of Europe during which he visited Paris and inaugurated the Entente Cordiale. In that same year Madame Curie succeeded in isolating the first piece of radium, and gained the distinction of being the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize, which she won in conjunction with her husband. Perhaps, however, the most significant event of the year was the first aeroplane flight, in which Orville Wright stayed in the air for twelve seconds, at Kittyhawk, North Carolina.

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.
