(Portsmouth Division)
(by permission of Brigadier A. G. B Bourne, C.B., D.S.O., M.V.O., A.D.C.)
Conducted by Lieutenant F. Vivian Dunn, Director of Music, Royal Marines
Haydn Wood was born in Yorkshire. He was a brilliant student of the violin at the Royal College of Music, and afterwards carried on his studies in Brussels. He visited most countries of the world as a soloist in a company which included the great ' singer, Albani. Although best known as a composer of ballads and light orchestral suites, he has written more serious works, such as a piano concerto, violin concerto, orchestral variations, and a string quartet which had the distinction of winning one of the prizes given by the late W. W. Cobbett.
His suite ' Frescoes ' is based on three panels executed by the well-known artist, Anna Zinkeisen.

: Shows From the Seaside: Twinkle

Presented by Clarkson Rose.
Introduced by Harry S. Pepper from the Pier Pavilion, Eastbourne.

"Twinkle" founded on Ryde Pier in 1921 with a party of six artists, is one of the oldest seaside entertainments in the British Isles. For the last four seasons it has been on the Pier at Eastbourne, where it plays to packed houses nightly and is regarded as one of Eastbourne's main attractions during the summer months.
Of the original 1921 cast only Olive Fox, the leading lady, and Clarkson Rose, remain. The present cast includes Eddie Henderson, a pawky Caledonian comedian; Gordon Holdom, a very popular baritone; and those well-known duettists, Becker and Julian. Rupert Rogers is the light comedian and comperes the show with Clarkson Rose. The Six Swingopators, under the direction of Conrad Leonard, provide the accompaniment.
Of the ladies, Anne Leslie, who was heard, with Clarkson Rose, in the broadcast from the Lyceum pantomime early this year, is the soprano, and Joy Hayden, a very vivacious soubrette. Rex Korda, in various character studies, and the Four Clarkson Rosebuds, complete the cast, most of whom will probably be heard in this excerpt from the show.

: THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Leader, George Stratton
Conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood from the Empire Exhibition
(Scotland)
The London Symphony Orchestra, which includes in its personnel some of the finest players in Britain, has built up for itself a fine tradition. Founded in 1904, from its first season it was hailed as one of the best of British orchestras-a fact that was confirmed the following year when the orchestra went to Paris with the Leeds Choral Union and in 1912 when it visited America under Nikisch.
Among the many distinguished conductors who have been associated with the London Symphony Orchestra are Richter, Nikisch, Safonov, Mengelberg, Beecham, Coates, Furtwangler, Weingartner, and Koussevitzky.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
