This is the last broadcast of the Northern Studio Orchestra prior to the inaugural broadcast of the newly formed B.B .C. Northern Orchestra on Wednesday. The new combination is composed of thirty-five players, and is therefore a full orchestra capable of tackling, without augmentation, the greater part of the orchestral repertory. The Northern Studio Orchestra, composed of only nine players, has been in existence for three years, and although it has carried thiough most of the studio broadcasting in the North, its power to cope with big music was naturally either limited or ineffective. The nine players will be absorbed into the new orchestra, to form its nucleus ; the remainder of the new players have been drawn from the Halle and Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestras, and the conductor will be T. H. Morrison.

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.
