JAMES COLLIER (baritone)
The working-man's orchestra ' flourishes in all our great manufacturing areas. Many of us tend too often to think of them as a peculiarly Northern institution, but bands flourish here, there, and everywhere—in South Wales and in the Five Towns.
The Kidsgrove Excelsior Band from the Potteries has won many awards at contests in North Staffordshire and Cheshire, and was in the prize list at Belle Vue last year.


Conductor: James Thorpe
Baritone: James Collier


Weather Forecast and News

: 'Back to the Land '-5

Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, and Northamptonshire
This is the last of S. L. Bensusan's grouped surveys of agricultural conditions in Midland counties, in the course of which he has dealt with such matters as the incidence of urban and rural population, unemployment, and actual and potential use of the land.
Next month this well - known authority and broadcaster is to sum up his findings, and in subsequent broadcasts he will debate problems affecting land settlement. Existing schemes in the Midlands will be discussed-notably one at Cheltenham, one near Birmingham, and two in Leicestershire.


Unknown: S. L. Beksusan

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

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.
