A Programme of Gramophone Records


Conductor, H. HEYES
The band was formed in 1911, and was for a time attached to the 1st Warwick Heavy Battery, R.G.A., a unit raised by the Metropolitan-Cammell Carriage Wagon and Finance Co. in which the members of the band are employed. By winning the Daily Express Shield in 1926, the band won promotion to the championship class at Crystal Palace, in which it has regularly competed. For most of its career its conductor was the late G. H. Wilson ; the present conductor was appointed in 1931. Over £ 1,000 has been won in prizes since the war. The Metropolitan was the first brass band to broadcast from the old Birmingham station at Witton.

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.
