Leader, Aldo Spiero from the Hotel Victoria
The popular conductor of the Hotel Victoria Orchestra was born at The Hague and began his musical career ai the age of nine at the Royal Conservatoire there. When he was seventeen he became a member of the celebrated Residence Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Viotta.
He stayed there for nine winter seasons playing under a number of distinguished guest conductors.
From The Hague, Aldo Spiero came to London to conduct at the King's Picture Playhouse, Chelsea, in the old silent days. He was then appointed leader of the Royal Roumanian Band in Blackpool, where he became a naturalised British subject. He was musical director for the Blackpool Tower Company for twelve years and was the first conductor to broadcast from the top of the Tower with his orchestra. With the advent of the talkies, he came to London and the Hotel Victoria.

The Heavyweight Championship of Great Britain
Len Harvey v. Eddie Phillips
A commentary on the fight by Thomas Woodrooffe and W. Barrington Dalby from Harringay Arena
When they meet tonight to contest the Heavyweight Championship of Great Britain, Len Harvey and Eddie Phillips will find themselves facing each other in the ring for the fourth time. When they first met, the fight was a draw, and Harvey has won in both the subsequent contests. It is interesting to note that previously the men have met as cruiserweights, whereas tonight they will fight as heavyweights proper.

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.
