: MUSIC FOR DANCING

played by Cyril Stapleton and his Orchestra
Cyril Stapleton was performing in public when still a youngster. He started learning the violin when seven years old, and in a year was winning prizes in music festival competitions. He first broadcast when only thirteen from the old Nottingham studios, and at fourteen he was leading a three-piece orchestra in a cinema. After study in Czecho- Slovakia, and at the Trinity College of Music, he went into Henry Hall 's band, eventually leaving it to form one of his own in Nottingham. He later toured with Jack Payne , formed another band of his own at the London San Marco, and later went to Fischer's Restaurant in Bond Street, where his is the resident band today.
His combination is somewhat unusual, consisting as it does of three tenor saxophones, three violins, bass, guitar, drums, and piano.

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.
