The composer of the popular ' Dale Dances', though not a Dalesman, is a genuine ' Yorkshire tyke ', having been born at Heckmondwike in 1875. He was deputy conductor of the Harrogate Corporation Orchestra for some years, but in 1903 became musical director at Terry's Theatre. He was later associated for many years with Robert Courtneidge 's productions and conducted at the Shaftesbury, the Gaiety, the Prince of Wales's, Daly's, His Majesty's, the Savoy, the Coliseum, and other
London theatres. Many of the most successful London musical comedies, including The Arcadians, Veronique, The Merry Widow, Madam Pompa dour, The Lady of the Rose, and Casanova, have been performed under Wood's baton. His own compositions include music for several revues and musical comedies, as well as orchestral pieces.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
