: LEONARDI AND HIS WIENER ORCHESTER

with Renee Barr (soprano)
When Jack Leonardi was fourteen he played the violin to Huberman, who was impressed with his capabilities and wrote to Willy Hess at the Berlin Conservatoire asking him to receive Leonardi as a pupil. He studied for two years, then, after a series of solo engagements, toured the world as solo violinist with Terpsichore, the French dancer.
Until quite recently he was closely associated with Alfredo's Orchestra, and was heard many times in the National programme as its leader. He first broadcast with his own orchestra in the West of England programme in July, 1937.

: Crooners' Corner

A National Crooning Bee
Master of the Ceremonies - Dick Bentley
The teams will line up as follows:
Ladies: Alice Mann, Helen McKay, Pat Taylor, Ann Trevor
Gentlemen: Len Bermon, Jack Cooper, Gene Crowley, Hughie Diamond
Devised by Felix Mendelssohn
Here is a chance for crooning fans to get together and hear their favourites matched one against the other in a grand national crooning bee. Representative teams of men and women crooners will be ranged opposite each other in the studio for half an hour. It is crooners on parade, and on their mettle!
Crooners Corner No.1, which was international in character, was broadcast in June this year, when Eddie Pola was compere. Dick Bentley who comperes the show this time, also looks after the 'You've asked for it' gramophone series.
All the crooners taking part in the broadcast tonight have been frequently heard over the air. Len Bermon was at one time with Henry Hall's BBC Dance Orchestra. Gene Crowley is resident singer and vocalist with Bram Martin, and Jack Cooper is with Jack Jackson's band. Among the others taking part Hughie Diamond, who sings with Jack Harris's band, is considered a rising star in his line, and Alice Mann is the wife of Billy Bissett, and sings with his band at the Cafe de Paris. Red-haired Helen McKay has often broadcast with dance bands, Pat Taylor has been heard with Jack Harris's band, and Ann Trevor with Maurice Winnick.

: THE WORLD GOES BY'

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
Prokofiev's opera, The Love for Three Oranges, if not actually comic opera, might at least be described as opera grotesque. Its story is the old story of The Prince Who Could Not Smile, with the addition of a fairy-tale curse ; the action, besides being full of magicians and sorcerers, incantations and transmogrifications, suggests a ballet rather than a straight opera.
The prologue reminds one of The
Beggar's Opera ; different factions try to put on the kind of performance they want, headed by the Tragicals, who ' run on from the right with bowed heads wildly waving umbrellas'. The day is won by the Drolls (Les Ridicules), but every now and again they have to beat off attacks by the Tragicals, who rush on in the middle of the action crying out for Tragedy.

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.
