The Song Hits of 1936 A programme of Gramophone Records
Arranged and presented by BRENT WOOD
Public and personal triumphs, political and domestic crises-all are enacted to the ever-changing accompaniment of popular tunes. As Cavalcade proved, the song ' hit' is an unrivalled reminder of recent history.
Once again Brent Wood offers his impression of the past year's jazz pattern, made up of the rhythm and melodies that fell on everybody's ear in the ordinary course of daily life. Brent Wood says that only frantic opposition from the advanced radio-dramatic writers prevented him from sub-titling this programme' Background to Action '.
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.
