from page 81 of 'New Every Morning'

: 'ESCAPE FROM WORRY'

Eric Gillett
This is the first of a new monthly series in which Eric Gillett will give housewives a selection of the more attractive things to think about. There is worry enough in the world, and Gillett's readings of verse and prose works will be calculated to dispel gloom and bestow a bright interval upon the workaday morning.
Gillett has been broadcasting for a number of years now and has given not only straight talks on literary subjects, but also many readings of which those from Tolstoy's ' War and Peace' will be most recently remembered. He gave a series of talks on Galsworthy's plays a year or two ago, another series entitled ' These My Friends ', dealing with well-known writers, and a third entitled ' Good Correspondents '.

: THE J. H. SQUIRECELESTE OCTET

with June Garden
Thousands of listeners will welcome the return of this popular conductor and combination to the air-Squire conducting before the microphone for the first time for seven years, the Celeste Octet broadcasting for the first time for three years. It was on the air regularly from 1923 to 1936, and was the father of all small orchestras, Squire making special arrangements for such orchestras as long ago as 1913. The Octet holds the record of going on the air without an audition and of having three dates fixed before its first broadcast. Dorothy Beastall's 'Looking
Backward '-an appropriate title for Squire's opening number-is to be heard for the first time on the air. Squire believes it to be the best melody he has heard for years.

: SID PHILLIPS AND HISORCHESTRA

While Sid Phillips may be unfamiliar as a name to listeners, he is none the less one of the most important figures in the world of dance music. His work consists not only in the making of recordings, but in the exceptionally fine orchestrations that he had made for the leading dance bands in this country in general and for Ambrose in particular. Phillips has been responsible for a number of outstanding swing compositions such as ' Night Ride ', ' Amazon goes a-wooing ', and ' Escapada ', an excerpt from which he is using for his signature tune tonight. This programme will consist of music that has been written and orchestrated for some of his American recordings.

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.
