: ARTHUR SALISBURY AND HIS ORCHESTRA

from the Savoy Hotel, London
Arthur Salisbury started to learn the violin when seven and a half years old. He studied under Senor Gomez and Professor Melzak until he was fifteen, when he passed through the Royal Academy of Music with distinction. After the war he continued to study under Melzak. In 1920 he met de Groot, became his leader, and stayed with him for six years. This introduced him to restaurant work, particularly through the Piccadilly Hotel.
Salisbury formed his six-piece light orchestra, and opened at Verrey's Restaurant, Regent Street, where he remained for three years, giving a broadcast almost every week. He ultimately moved to the Savoy, where he has been for the last nine years.

: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
' One of the minor poets of music, Lyadov remains one of the most lovable ', writes M. D. Calvocoressi. That phrase sums him up perfectly, both as artist and as man. Lyadov's music is poetic, charming, piquant, never ' big stuff '-but never swollen. exaggerated, or overstrained.
One of the most charming of men,
Lyadov was fatally handicapped by typically Russian indolence, and his output was comparatively small. For years he was supposed to be composing a fairy-tale opera, Zoryushka, but all that appeared of it was two or three charming fragments for orchestra, of which ' The Enchanted Lake ' is one.
Symphony No. 5, in B flat....Schubert
1 Allegro. 2 Andante con moto. 3 Minuetto: Allegro molto. 4 Allegro vivace
Suite, Op. 9.....Enesco
1 Prelude in Unison. 2 Slow Minuet. 3 Interlude. 4 Finale

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Boyd Neel
Boyd Neel has had an interesting career. Born in London thirty-one years ago, Boyd Neel began as a medical student at Caius College, Cambridge, finally taking his medical degrees and becoming house surgeon at St. George's Hospital, where he remained for four years. His great hobby was music, and in an amateur capacity he sang in opera and played the clarinet. Finally, the call of music became too strong, and he resigned his post at St. George's and went to Munich and Salzburg to study his new profession. In 1933 he returned to England and formed his own orchestra, which consists for the most part of young and keen musicians.

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.
