Produced and introduced by Brian WILLEY s
A special Percussion Group was formed for part of today's BBC experimental broadcast. Eight musicians were used: three percussionists (bringing with them every piece of equipment they possessed); a conventional rhythm section-piano, bass, guitar, and drums; and to provide tonal contrast, one player with a variety of wind instruments. In all, some fifty pieces of musical equipment were used by the eight men, and the resulting sound was created on paper for them by five arrangers with contrasting individual styles. The Technical Department had to work hard, for musicians play the same, whether the sound is to be mono or stereo, but the arrangers provided scores designed for stereo which the technicians helped to realise in terms of sound. You may find the result intriguing—even if you only sit back and enjoy the music.

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.
