Conductor, J. H. BOFFY
The West Bromwich Borough Band was first formed in 1908, but after three years was given up and then re-organised. Since 1928, when it won its first prize at Bournville, it has had a number of successes in competition work. New quarters have recently been built for the band by its President, Councillor J. J. Grant. Conducted by Mr. Boffy the band plays regularly at West Bromwich Albion's First League matches at the Hawthorns. Frank Sawyers is a Coventry artist with considerable concert experience since 1931. For some years before then he was a humorous entertainer.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
