Relayed from the Town Hall,
Birmingham The Birmingham City Police Band has frequently broadcast in the Midland programme, but has not been heard for more than three years. It is one of the finest in the country, and now has some sixty-five players. The late Chief Constable, Sir Charles Rafter , who was an accomplished flautist and an authority on wind instruments, did much by his encouragement and support to enhance its reputation. It played regularly in the Birmingham parks as well as giving Town Hall concerts. Its civilian music director has for many years been Richard Wassell , the well-known Birmingham conductor, whose enthusiastic promotion of orchestral concerts led the way to the formation of a permanent orchestra in Birmingham.
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.
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.
