The Small Heath Baptist Church was established in Victoria Street, Birmingham, in 1873, and was moved to its present site in 1891. The first pastor, Charles Joseph , who was a lay preacher and working mason before being called to the church, helped enthusiastically in the actual building operations. Later in his career he was given the highest honour of the Baptist Church, being made president of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and Ireland. The present pastor, T. Percy George , has been minister since 1921.

Conductor, George W. Cave
Robert Easton (bass)
The Coventry Colliery Band was started in 1930 by a few miners and their friends in the village of Keresley, near Coventry.
George W. Cave, who is conducting the programme this evening, has several times adjudicated at the Crystal Palace and Belle Vue festivals. He was appointed musical director of the band in 1936. Robert Easton , who is to sing two groups of songs, was born in Sunderland and joined a church choir at the age of six. After service in the war he studied singing under various distinguished teachers, including Plunket Greene and Dawson Freer. Since that time he has come to the fore as a solo singer, having sung at most musical festivals and with the leading choral societies. He has performed at Covent Garden during the opera season.

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.
