There can be few more popular broadcasters than Reginald King, who has been on the air with his orchestra over five hundred times and his won for it a name that is enviable anywhere. He arranges all his own music and always has the same combination of instruments : three violins, viola, 'cello, bass, oboe (doubling cor anglais), Mustel organ (doubling celesta), and piano (which he plays himself). In 1931 Reginald King was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. Three years ago he founded the Celebrity Trio, which broadcasts regularly, and as a composer of tuneful pieces with delightful titles he stands second to none. Few modern composers' names appear so often in the programmes of light orchestras playing and broadcasting throughout the country.
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

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

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.
