: GEIGER AND HIS ORCHESTRA

from Claridge's Hotel
Josef Geiger was brought up in a musical atmosphere. At the age of seven his father taught him to play the drum in order to inculcate a good sense of rhythm, and within a few months he was playing that instrument in his father's orchestra. During the next three years he studied successively the violin and cello and eventually showed such great gifts as a cellist that he was sent to Vienna where he studied under Professor Paul Grummer at the Royal Musical Academy.
After the war Mr. Geiger went to
Berlin to study under Hugo Becker , and two years later he went to Norway where he gave several recitals. Then he returned to Berlin and played at the Restaurant Dressel, The Esplanade, and several other well-known Berlin hotels. In 1927 Mr. Geiger was engaged to play at the London Savoy Hotel, and two years later he formed his Tzigane Orchestra for Claridge's. Josef Geiger 's radio experience has been fairly extensive, for he began broadcasting in the early days of radio in Berlin, and since December, 1936, he has been broadcasting regularly from Claridge's.

: THEATRE MUSIC BY ALFRED REYNOLDS

played by The BBC Midland Orchestra
Led by Ernest Element
Conducted by the Composer
Alfred Reynolds was Musical Director at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, for the greater part of Sir Nigel Playfair 's years of high adventure there. Playfair came to look to Reynolds for all the incidental music he needed for the many old comedies he put on at the Lyric, quickly learning that he could not find a better man. The Duenna, Lionel and Clarissa, and Riverside Nights are only a few of the many plays for which the incidental music was written by Alfred Reynolds , who, thus primed, was later to collaborate with A. P. Herbert in opera. It is to this collaboration we owe that popular perennial Derby Day.

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.
