: Faith in an Elevator

2/3. Producer/arranger
Richard Niles celebrates the easy-listening recordings of orchestra leader and arranger Percy Faith (1908-76), who remains best known for the huge 1960 US/UK hit The Theme from A Summer Place - a soaring high-stringed instrumental that exemplifies the breezy near-soporific sound that wound up in dentist offices and department-store lifts before finding favour among young and ironic listeners in the late 1980s. Tonight arrangers Nick Ingman and John Altman and the Feeling's Rich Jones discuss
Faith's 1952 hit Delicado. And Colin Maclntyre hears his song You're a Star reinvented in Percy Faith style.

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.
