Leader, Frank Thomas
Conductor, Idris Lewis
Ceredig Jones (baritone)
Until he was twenty years of age, Ceredig Jones worked on his father's farm, and spent all his leisure time studying music with the village schoolmaster. After several successes at Eisteddfodau he entered the Royal Academy of Music, and in two years he gained the L.R.A.M. Diploma and the Academy's Bronze and Silver Medals. One of his greatest successes in his native country was his rendering of the bass part in Messiah, in Neath in August, 1934.

: A RECITAL

The Maurice Cole Trio:
Winifred Small (violin)
Kathleen Moorhouse (violoncello)
Maurice Cole (pianoforte)
Most of the chamber music of Schumann's later period shows unmistakable traces of the weariness which was falling on his spirit as a result of successive attacks of mental depression and bodily illness. But the Trio in D minor is far less affected by any such weakness than his other music composed in those last years, and, though a restlessness of spirit can easily be heard in it, the music has its moments of self-confident energy too.

: BBC BALLROOM

Dancing tonight to
Herman Darewski and his
New Melody Rhythm Band
Admission by radio only
This is the third broadcast in the series from the BBC Ballroom, and the popular conductor to be starred tonight is that great personality, Herman Darewski , fresh from yet another triumphant season at Bridlington, where this summer a million people paid for admission to the Spa Royal Hall. He has given one broadcast already since his return, the occasion being when he reintroduced his New Rhythm Band to the South, and broadcast from a London studio on October 6. This orchestra made its debut on the air in April, went with him to Bridlington, and broadcast from there in May. They played with him there during the season and will be incorporated in the New Melody Rhythm Band he presents tonight.
Darewski, broadcasting for the first time from the already famous BBC Ballroom (will listeners please note that they cannot be allotted tickets just yet ?) has planned a new device whereby those dancing in their homes, with the radio on, may find, to their surprise, that they hear themselves dancing. He hopes that as many listeners as possible will dance tonight. Listeners will hear an ' actuality ' programme-a band of seventeen, announcements, requests for particular dances, the real thing. Darewski is very anxious for listeners, whether they are dancing or no, to write and tell him how the broadcast comes over.

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.
