Conductor, Major S. FAIRFIELD
(solo comet, HAROLD HALL )
St. Hilda's is one of the most famous and popular Silver bands in the North. Unlike many other bands, it is professional, and as such is constantly on tour during the summer months, with the result that, although it is centred at South Shields and though its conductor and most of the bandsmen are Northerners, its local associations are rather less close than those of some other famous combinations'. The Band has won the Crystal Palace Thousand Guineas Trophy and the World's Championship on five occasions, and has won over £15,000 in prizes. In October of this year it is to play for six weeks at the Empire Exhibition in Johannesburg. The Sheffield Orpheus Male Voice Quartet has also gained a more than local reputation. It has twice appeared at Buckingham Palace by Royal Command, and has won some forty of the fifty-six competitions it has entered. The director and second tenor is T. H. Ratcliffe , who toured the world in 191 1 with Sir Henry Coward.

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.
