: 'THE MAN WHO BROKE THE NEEDLE'

a short story by Graham Sutton read by the author
Graham Sutton , who is to repeat his short story, ' The Man who Broke the Needle', is both author and reader of many North Country stories that have been heard on the air ; among them a sheep-farming story, ' Paying Guest'; a fell-walking story, ' A Hot Day on Bow-fell ' ; and a Solway story, ' Wanted for Murder ', which he broadcast last Christmas. He is a native of Cumberland, and fell-walking and rock-climbing are his favourite pursuits. His stories are drawn mainly from experience, ' Paying Guest', for instance, being suggested by an incident in his boyhood and by first-hand experience of sheep-dipping. He ' vetted ' the dialect and coached the cast of D'ye Ken John Peel , broadcast in October, 1936.

: THE BAND OF THE ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE. SANDHURST

(By permission of Lt.-General B. D. Fisher ,
C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O.)
Conductor, T. Stenning (Soloist, Sergt. C. WILLIAMS )
The Band of the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, was formed in 1813, the number of players being fourteen. For the first fifty years of its existence it was organised and paid direct by the War Office, whilst other Army bands were purely regimental concerns.
The first bandmaster of whom there is any definite record was Thomas Sullivan , the father of Sir Arthur Sullivan , who first became acquainted with instruments and music under his father's tuition at
Sandhurst. The band, which today consists of the normal personnel of a military band, is honouring this connection today by opening its programme with two Sullivan excerpts.

(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Ciitford
Sinigaglia has long been enthusiastic in the collection and propagation of the folk music of his native Piedmont; it may well have been Dvorak, whose pupil he was, who infected him with an enthusiasm like his own. One of his most important compositions is his suite ' Piedmont' which is based on Piedmontese folk dances and songs. It is interesting to note that Toscanini sponsored this work in Italy and America.

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.
