Soprano: Miranda Sugden


at the Organ of the Plaza Theatre,
Rugby -
Organ recitals have been broadcast regularly from the Plaza Theatre,
Rugby, since January, 1933. The organ, a three-manual instrument, was specially designed by Reginald Foort.
Like so many other cinema organists, John Bennett had a great deal of experience of church music in his early days. At the age of twenty-three he won the organ solo prize at the Swansea Eisteddfod and later he was made an F.R.C.O. Before going to Rugby, he held theatre appointments in Ipswich, Tottenham, Dundee, Coventry, Birmingham, and Kidderminster.


Designed By: Reginald Foort.

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.
