: Tom Jenkins

at the Organ of the Plaza Cinema, Swansea
Tom Jenkins, a native of Neath, began his musical studies on the piano at the age of seven. Between the ages of twelve and seventeen he was mainly engaged in piano competitions and Eisteddfodau where he won 185 prizes. His piano teacher, who was also an organist in a large church at Neath, began to give him lessons on the organ, but in less than a year the teacher died and Tom Jenkins took his place as the organist at the age of seventeen. Eighteen months later he became organist and choirmaster, and assisted Dr. Hopkin Evans in forming the Neath Choral Society.
When the Cardiff Plaza opened, Tom Jenkins was appointed musical director of the orchestra from 1926 to 1931, since when he has been organist and manager of the Swansea Plaza. He gave his first broadcast from there in 1932, and subsequently broadcast every week for years.

: HENRY CROUDSON

at the Organ of the Ritz Theatre,
Birkenhead
Henry Croudson comes to the microphone today with another of his popular recitals. He is a Leeds man, and held two cinema organ appointments in that city before leaving it over two years ago. Like so many of his contemporaries, he started his musical career as a church organist, learning to play at St. Chad's, Leeds, and afterwards becoming organist at the oldest church in the city, St. John's. He continued to hold the latter appointment after he had started cinema work, relinquishing it some four years ago.
Not only an organist,
Henry Croudson is also a pianist of some note.- Some years ago, for a wager, he started an accordion band of unemployed men, which proved a great success in Yorkshire.

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.
