: LEONARDI AND HIS WIENER ORCHESTER

with Renee Barr (soprano)
Eric Shrimpton (electric guitar)
Robert Keys (pianoforte) Peter Valerio (accordion) from the Continental Restaurant,
Bournemouth
Leonardi has broadcast from Bournemouth for some two years, and endeavours to create a definite personality about his Orchestra in justification of its title of Wiener Orchester.
The aim is not to exploit Viennese music as such, but to play all kinds of music in the Viennese style.

: Tommy Matthews and his Concert Orchestra present 'SWIFT SERENADE'

with , The Swingtime Quartet :
Ralph Bruce Frank Harlow Len Whiteley Peter Sloan
Arrangements by Ray Terry and Clair Bruce from the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton
Tommy Matthews , whose ' Swift Serenade' programmes have been running for some four years, first broadcast in 1935 with the BBC
Northern Orchestra, in which he was a violinist. The ' Swift Serenade ' series started in the North, and since 1936 has been featured in the main
Regional programme.
Matthews left the BBC Northern
Orchestra in 1938, and has been free-lancing ever since. He makes a great feature of nursery rhymes arranged in modern style, sometimes in dance-music rhythm and sometimes as sophisticated straight music. There are twenty-four instrumentalists in the orchestra, for which Matthews, as well as conducting, does the classical arrangements.

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.
