Leslie Bridgewater started broadcasting with his Quintet some three years ago and their subsequent broadcasts have become a regular and extremely popular feature of the weekly programmes. Bridgewater is a Worcestershire man, and, showing musical talent at a very early age, was sent to the Birmingham School of Music in his teens, and studied under Boughton and Bantock. At sixteen he was earning money as pianist in a local theatre, writing music-and getting paid for it. His later experience as theatre conductor has been of immense service to him in arranging the music played by his quintet. Part of the fascination his broadcasts have is due to the effective instrumentation which Bridgewater takes special care to see is applied to every item he directs.
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.
