: SAM COSTA

in songs at the piano
Sam Costa was in the advertising business until they fired him for thinking more about playing the piano than selling space. An uncle put a job in his way-to take a band to Margate, in the summer of 1929. They played at Dreamland, and were all young people. Nat Temple, saxophone, is now with Harry Roy ; Maurice Burman , drums, is now with Billy Bissett ; Sam Costa played the piano and sang.
He was destined to join Jack Pad -bury's dance band, and then to broadcast with Jack Jackson , and then with Maurice Winnick , both from Ciro's and the San Marco. He has been on the air with dance bands constantly since 1931. Last summer he broadcast in a Variety programme. This afternoon, for the first time, he is on the air on his own. His songs will be of popular appeal, and he will accompany them himself.

Symphony No. 25, in G minor
(K.183)
1 Allegro con brio. 2 Andante. 3 Minuetto. 4 Finale : Allegro
Mozart's Symphony No. 25 in G minor (KI83), probably written at Salzburg in 1773 or 1774, is usually known as ' the little G minor' to distinguish it from the ' great' G minor (K.550). Like the latter, and like so many of Mozart's other compositions in the same key (e.g., the Piano Quartet, K.478, and the String Quintet, KSI6), K.183 is fiery and passionate, almost tragic, in character. It is, in fact, outstanding among Mozart's earlier symphonies.
The Symphony is scored for two oboes, four horns, and strings, though the second pair of horns is replaced by two bassoons in the second movement and the trio of the third.

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.
