: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. WALTON O'DONNELL
ERIC MARSHALL (Baritone)
The title of the Wireless Military Band is somewhat a misnomer, for it is not a service band, nor yet does it perform as a rule military music. Actually it approximates to what is known abroad as a 'wind orchestra.' Its personnel by no means consists entirely of military bands-men ; there are a number of leading orchestral wind players. Since its formation in 1927, the Wireless Military Band has regularly played three programmes per week, which means that its 1,000th performance has already been passed. To provide variety in the programmes is a difficult task, for there is so little music composed specially for military bands. In 1927 there was a repertoire of two hundred and sixty four items, now there are over two thousand five hundred! These are, of course, for the most part, special arrangements of classical works-suites, overtures, rhapsodies, and even movements of popular symphonies, such as the ' Unfinished ' Symphony of Schubert.

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.
