: REGINALD FOORT

at the BBC Theatre Organ
' A Year Ago Today '
Compere, Bryan Michie
The BBC Theatre Organ was opened just a year ago today, four brilliant organists taking part in the first broadcast: Quentin Maclean , Harold Ramsay , Reginald Porter-Brown , and Reginald Foort. It so happened that Reginald Foort , coming last, had to cut his time down considerably, but had the consolation of being informed before the broadcast that he had been engaged as permanent organist.
In the year that has elapsed Foort has given no fewer than 115 solo broadcasts to British listeners and twenty-four in addition to the Empire ; he has broadcast with other artists nineteen times, to say nothing of the numberless Music-Hall and other Variety programmes in which he has assisted. He had a big name when he came to the BBC. He has an even bigger name today.
He first broadcast, on the piano, from Marconi House on January 15, 1923. Since then he has been on the air 693 times. He was the first broadcasting organist to talk to his listeners, explaining in his individual chatty way, what he was going to play to them. He continued this when he came to the BBC a year ago. This gives his broadcasts a personal touch and individuality all his own. He has also had an opportunity of combining all kinds of other artists with the organ-singers, piano, and drums, and various instruments of the dance-band type. His broadcasts on the organ with four brass-band instruments have been very popular.
This evening he will broadcast some of the pieces he played on the air a year ago.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
