: HARRY FRYER AND HIS ORCHESTRA

from the Chiswick Empire
Harry Fryer , accomplished resident conductor of the fifteen-strong Chiswick Empire Orchestra, is a North Countryman. As a lad in Sunderland he started his musical career by playing the piano in a local cinema. Seventeen years ago he joined the Gaumont-British Picture Corporation, for whom he worked for twelve and a half years, ending up in the position of musical director at the Tivoli cinema in the Strand.
Later he succeeded Louis Levy at the Shepherd's Bush Pavilion, where he gave over two hundred broadcasts. After touring various Paramount theatres for three years, he took his orchestra to the Chiswick Empire just under two years ago.
Most of his orchestra have played under him for the last six years or so. Fryer's biggest musical thrill, he tells us, was when he was invited by Sir Dan Godfrey to conduct the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra.

: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Leslie Heward
The Siegfried Idyll, one of the loveliest things Wagner ever wrote, was not originally intended for the world in general, it was Wagner's personal gift to his second wife, and it was only later that he decided to publish it and permit its public performance. For several years Wagner had been living in retirement at Tribschen with Cosima, the divorced wife of Von Biilow , and in 1869 she bore him a son, whom they named Siegfried. Next year he married her and on her birthday gave her this delightful surprise, the Siegfried Idyll, played by a small orchestra on the stairs outside her bedroom door.

by Angus Morrison
Ravel's Suite of Dances in waltz rhythm has as a motto a quotation from the poet Henri de Regnier: ' The ever new and delightful pleasure of a useless occupation '.
In its original form (for piano) the set of waltze; was played in 1911 at a concert at which all the items appeared on the programmes without the composers' names and the audience was invited to try to discover their identity. A majority correctly ascribed the waltzes to Ravel, but Saint-Saens, Satie, d'Indy, Mes-

Van Phillips and his two Orchestras Orchestrations by Van Phillips and Alf Ralston
Produced by Vernon Harris
This popular dance-band comedy series opened on April 4, when Van Phillips , after years of experience as band-leader and arranger, made a Welcome return to broadcasting after an absence of two years, and suddenly blossomed out in a new line and became, in addition, script-writer and actor for, and in, his own shows.
Generally speaking, Time to
Laugh ' is 'sixty per cent. script and forty per cent. music. Music (with Van Phillips conducting two orchestras) personalities, gags, laughs, a six-minute sketch—these ingredients assure the success of a novel and entertaining programme.

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.
