THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ALFRED CAVE )
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
EMILY BROUGHTON (Soprano)
MARY ABBOTT (Pianoforte) The City of Birmingham Orchestra is unique in being the only organisation of its kind in this country receiving a subsidy from the rates of an .industrial city. It is a matter of civic pride that Birmingham, more than any other city in Great Britain, affords its citizens, including those least favourably circumstanced, frequent opportunities of enjoying music in its highest form, at little or no cost to themselves.
Rugby-well known for its great Public School
-has also been an important centre for electrical research and manufacture for over thirty years. A talk on some recent achievements, ranging from ship propulsion to the latest methods of recording and reproducing talking films, will be given by Mr. F. H. CLOUGH , C.B.E. Interest will be enhanced by incidental noises in the works at Rugby from which the talk is being relayed.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
