: SYDNEY CUSTARD

at the Organ of the Apollo Theatre,
Ardwick, Manchester
Unlike many well-known musicians, Sydney Gustard was in no sense an infant prodigy. He did, however, become interested in organ-playing at a fairly early age, and he studied hard at the organ, piano, and viola during the years he spent in an accountant's office. The war put a stop to his plan of becoming a cathedral organist. As soon as it was over, however, he took up cinema organist's work and has been doing it ever since.
He opened Liverpool's first Wurlitzer organ in 1927, and first broadcast from Chester in 1932. He reckons to have given something like 170 hours of broadcasting.

: THE SECOND NEWS

: Bransby Williams

Bransby Williams brings to life Detectives in Fiction.

Bransby Williams, versatile artist that he is, was delighting audiences with his brilliant impersonations of Dickens characters long before he ever broadcast. Since he began to be heard on the air, he has given innumerable transmissions in a manner that provides radio at its best.

This evening he is entering a new field of impersonation, and one which affords wide scope for his talent. In fifteen minutes he will come before you in the roles of seven characters, most of them detectives. He will speak as Chesterton's mild little Father Brown, as the insouciant Scarlet Pimpernel, as a tough U.S. cop, as Edgar Wallace's Mr. Reeder, and as the enigmatic and whimsical Charlie Chan. No list of detectives would be complete without the greatest of them all, and it is as Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street that Bransby Williams will make his final bow.

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.
