John Foulds is a Manchester man, and at one time played the cello in the Halle Orchestra. In London he has had an extensive experience as a conductor and as an organiser of concerts. He has written a large number of compositions ; songs, piano pieces, chamber music, and orchestral works. One of his most ambitious works is A World Requiem ', which was specially composed in remembrance of the War.
It is also interesting to note that he was one of the early experimenters in the use of a quarter-tone system, and in this respect anticipated the inventions of several Central European composers.

: A RECITAL

by John Coates (tenor)
Listeners hardly need to be reminded that a John Coates recital is rather different from an ordinary recital. Not only does he do his own announcing, he does it in a way that seems to bring him in close personal touch with every listener before he has sung a note.
Coates has been singing in public since he was five ; at least, he began to sing in his father's choir at that age. Strangely enough, he began his adult career as a baritone ; he was in his middle thirties before he emerged as a tenor. He is equally at home in the concert-hall and on the opera stage, in Tudor music and in Wagner. Elgar wrote the tenor parts in The Apostles and The Kingdom with his voice in mind.

: KEN 'SNAKE-HIPS' JOHNSON AND HIS WEST INDIAN DANCE ORCHESTRA

Although coloured dance orchestras are generally considered by British listeners to be a monopoly of the American entertainment world, it may be surprising to many to know that we have a counterpart in this country. America has Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway and other famous Negro bands, but tonight is to be broadcast our own Negro band in Ken Johnson with his all-British combination consisting of West Indian Negroes.
Ken Johnson , who has acquired the nickname of ' Snake-hips' for reasons which are quite obvious to those who have seen him on the stage, has been playing in this country now for a year and comes to the microphone tonight for the first time. He will endeavour to please the average listener who likes straightforward melodic playing, but, at the same time, he hopes that swing enthusiasts will compare his style of playing favourably with that of the best Negro bands which America can offer.

: ' STRANGE TO RELATE '

No. 7
In which Radio Brings to Life
Curious Events of the Past and Present
Arranger and Compere,
Charles Brewer
The Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
The original ' Strange to Relate ', in which music, history, and personalities combined to tell their own anecdotes, was broadcast in April, 1936. Letters poured in from listeners, one enthusiast saying: ' Strange to relate, but we want more '.
The last broadcast was given in March, 1937, and the announcement that the series was to be revived met with enthusiasm in the Press. ' The Unknown Reporters ' have once again been finding out interesting things that are taking place in London, and Charles Brewer himself has been busy doing research to keep the programmes up to date. There are to be two more broadcasts in the series during the spring.

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.
