: THE MARGATE MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harry Lipman
Conductor, Herbert Lodge from the Winter Gardens, Margate
Herbert Lodge began his musical career as a double-bass player. Having won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at an early age, he studies under Charles Winterbottom. Before long he was playing in the Covent Garden Opera Orchestra and in 1919 he joined the London Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. He has given double-bass recitals in London and the provinces and over the air. But like Koussevitzky, Lodge was not content to remain a double-bassist ; he aspired to the baton. Even at eighteen he was conducting an amateur operatic society ; during the War he ran a symphony orchestra of his own ; in 1929 he succeeded Bainbridge Robinson as musical director of the Margate Municipal Orchestra.

: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conductor, B. Walton O'Donnell
Gladys Palmer (contralto)
Chaykovsky's ' Casse-noisette ' (Nutcracker). Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written. The whole work is, of course, much longer than the Suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage.
The story of the ballet is taken from E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale ' Nutcracker and the Mouse-King '—this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera.
The complete ballet was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1892, and is now in the repertoire of the Vic-Wells Ballet. The Suite was introduced to England by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert in 1896. GLADYS PALMER

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
