Conductor, Gilbert Shufflebotham
This orchestra from the neighbourhood of Stoke-on-Trent was founded by its conductor in 1932, with players drawn from the schools in the district, their average age being only twelve. Premier awards have been won at Queen's Hall, London (twice), Blackpool (the Sellars Trophy), Manchester (twice), and other festivals.
H. Campbell Stewart
Dr. H. Campbell Stewart has been the organist at Magdalen College, Oxford, since 1918, a post from which he retires this month. From 1927 to 1937 he was Choragus of the University of Oxford, a position akin to that of assistant professor of music. He has had an interesting sporting career-cricket for Kent, football for Sussex, rowing once in the Magdalen College eight, and golf down to plus two.

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.
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.
