: 'A Minuet-and How ? '

Dance Tunes Old and New'
Presented by CHARLES BREWER in collaboration with THE MIDLAND STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Directed by FRANK CANTELL and PHILIP BROWN 'S ELYSIAN DANCE BAND
A LITTLE feature which gives listeners a medley of dance tunes. Some are from the days of crinolines and fans-minuets, pavanes, and so on-while others have only come to life since the war. Each kind of dance has its champion : the lady in the case is all for the dances of olden days, but the young man-cocktail-ridden and blas2—has no use for anything but fox-trots, tangos, and the like. The Studio Orchestra pleads for the old-time tunes, while airs from the modern dance-hall are played by the Elysian
Dance Band.

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.
