: THE CLARILYN SEXTET

(All the above items arranged by Frederick Kell )
The Clarilyn Sextet, which consists of two violins, viola, cello, bass, with clarinet added, broadcast for the first time in July last year. It is claimed that such a combination playing light and classical music was the first to be introduced over the radio in this country. The aim of the Sextet is that of sweet, quiet music calculated to soothe the listener.
Frederick Kell , a well-known York musician, founded the combination, and himself finds and arranges all the music.

: 'PARIS REVISITED'

Recorded impressions of a day in the capital of France
Produced by Laurence Gilliam and Robert Kemp
Many listeners will remember that colourful feature programme, ' The Spirit of Paris ' that was broadcast during the visit of M. and Mme. Lebrun to England in March this year. Producers Laurence Gilliam and Robert Kemp spent some time in Paris with a car, and with the help of Andre Beucler collected a medley of radio pictures, some grave, some gay, taking the listeners through a Parisian day. On that occasion you heard about the Paris of the Parisian, but this evening you will visit the Paris more generally associated with la tourisme.
The car-load of English visitors, whom you may remember following round Paris night life in the last programme, will be on the trail again, this time having a look at the Paris they want to see by day. But the evening will not be forgotten, and once again the voice of the gay city will be broadcast in its many tones and semi-tones to British listeners.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE MANCHESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY by GRACIE FIELDS
The Manchester Royal Infirmary was founded in 1752 in a small house with only twelve beds. Today, with 885 beds under its direct control, it is the largest teaching hospital in the provinces.
The Infirmary, which serves not only the city of Manchester but the whole of the north-western region of England, is equipped with every modern clinic required in a large general teaching hospital.
The most recent addition is a large orthopaedic and physio-therapeutic block with a daily fracture clinic where injured persons are restored to their normal duties in a fraction of the time hitherto required.
The deficits on the Maintenance
Fund have during the past eight years totalled £128,543 and its free capital reserves have now come to an end.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should he addressed to Miss Gracie Fields, [address removed].

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.

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.
