Kettering Rifle Band had its origin over a century ago, when it was founded as a Yeomanry Band in the kitchen of Chesham House, to which the present Band returns each Christmas to give a programme of Yuletide music. In 1898 the Band represented England in an international contest at Dieppe. Notable Bandmasters of the past have been James Fisher Mobbs and Thomas Seddon. The present conductor, who is also the Secretary, has held office since 1924.
Paul Brittain has broadcast several times. His real name is Victor Gamson, and he is well-known both as a cartoonist and a syncopating pianist.
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.
