: THE GERARD SINGERS

The Gerard Singers, who provide one of the most unusual male-voice combinations on the air, came into being in August, 1937. It was originally Ernest Longstaffe who suggested to Maurice Gerard that he form a male-voice quartet that he could use in ' Palace of Variety', and the result was the formation of this group consisting of tenor, first baritone, second baritone, and bass. All four singers are heard from time to time as solo broadcasters. Gerard himself accompanies the singers and does all their musical arrangements.

: 'COAL AND OIL

A discussion between Lord Cadman and Sir Robert Burrows
Few more able speakers could have been chosen for this evening's discussion on coal and oil than Lord Cadman and Sir Robert Burrows. Lord Cadman, chairman of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, is one of the greatest living authorities on oil, and Sir Robert Burrows is chairman of the Lancashire Associated
Collieries, vice-chairman of Manchester Collieries, and an outstanding figure in the coal world.
The speakers will examine the history of these two substances which have so much in common. Of coal it may be said that the prosperity of Britain was founded upon it, while oil, in its manifold uses, seems to have an almost unlimited future.

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.
