Conductor, Effie Fayle
Joseph Lingard (flute) This choir comes from the Douglas district of the Isle of Man, and was formed in 1924 among the supporters and players of an amateur football club. The club is now defunct, but the choir goes on with a career of vigorous achievement, maintaining an excellent musical standard. Successes have been obtained at Blackpool as well as at local musical festivals.
The choir's original conductor was a man, one of the football players. When he retired some six years ago the present conductor, Effie Fayle , a schoolmistress well known in Manx musical circles as both a singer and a conductor, took over.
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.
