The Little Orchestra, which is the new name of Jack Hardy 's Quintet (formerly the Houghton Novelty Quintet), is presenting a series of programmes appropriate to ' Special Occasions '. It will be remembered that there was recently a programme of music ' At the Cinema ' consisting for the most part of film music. Tonight the setting will be a flower show, and Richard North , as compere, will give some indication of the ceremonial connected with it and the various exhibits.

: THE BARTON VERSE SPEAKING CHOIR

in a programme which includes some dialect poetry
It will be remembered that a verse speaking choir was introduced with some effect into a play recently broadcast from Newcastle, Abagail Tysack. These combinations are not dissimilar from singing choirs. They are split into various sections-for instance, into high and low voices-and there are soloists. The Barton Verse Speaking Choir was formed in Birkenhead two years ago; it supplied the choruses for the Liverpool production of T. S. Eliot 's Murder in the Cathedral. Recently Laurence Binyon gave the choir a choric ode with which to experiment.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
