: A RECITAL

by Harry Hopewell (baritone)
It was a lover and his lass. ...Morley
Harry Hopewell was singing for the BBC regularly in 2ZY days-when Manchester was a broadcasting ' station ' and not the headquarters of the North Region-and his rousing baritone songs remain popular with listeners. Once, when he had finished ' The Two Grenadiers '-which is in his recital this evening-an old man among the audience in the studio called out: 'Eh, laad! That fair warms th' cockles o' mi heart!'. He is a Nottingham man, originally destined for the lace trade, but clearly cut out from the start for a singing career.

: FODEN'S MOTOR WORKS BAND

Conductor, F. Mortimer
Foden's is probably the most famous brass band in the world-and there is no ' probably ' about it if you ask after the band in Sandbach, the Cheshire town near Elworth, the village in which the motor works is situated. The bandsmen are idols in that part of the world. As for the band, it has won top places at Crystal Palace and Belle Vue time after time ; has played before Royalty; has toured abroad ; and maintains such a high standard that concert bookings are often seasons ahead.

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.
