5-Fats Waller
A programme of gramophone records
Arranged and presented by Brent Wood
'The harmful little armful' of American radio has lately gained, solely through his records, a wide public in England. Waller's appeal is two-fold ; he ranks among the greatest swing pianists and he possesses an extraordinarily gay and vibrant personality. His high spirits stimulate, whilst his artistry delights: when he holds the balance evenly between these qualities the result is superb jazz.
Tonight Brent Wood adds to his
' Minstrels' Gallery' a portrait of this likeable and brilliant Negro musician.

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
