Seventy Years of British Television
Last in a series on the history of television in which Alan Whicker assesses its impact on our society.
6: Multi-choice and Multi-channel. With more to choose from than ever before, are viewers getting a better deal or is television as we know it in terminal decline? What does the future hold?
A series devoted to forties bandleader and trumpeter Harry James, a key figure in swing.
A look at the young James as he joins Ben Pollack's outfit and becomes a dependable session man, booked for his hot but mellifluous trumpet. Campbell Burnett presents a musical selection that includes the works of the Ben Pollack Band, the Dean and His Kids, Lionel Hampton and Teddy Wilson's small group recordings.
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.
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.
