A programme of lighter music played by a section of The BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by H. Foster Clark
' Theatre Time ' made its first appearance on January 9, beginning a new series of light music programmes by a section of the BBC Northern Orchestra. H. Foster Clark conducts in these broadcasts, which will help to meet the call for more light music, and which are distinct from the regular and frequent broadcasts by the full orchestra, usually devoted to more serious works.
Conductor, George E. Stead
The Huddersfield Vocal Union dates from 1914, though it began under another name. It flourished under its first conductor and founder, J. Fletcher Sykes , for twenty years, and its initial success is now being carried on by its present conductor, George E. Stead. It has won more than thirty first prizes in Northern competitions and in Wales, including the chief choral prize at Blackpool in the last two years successively. Its members are for the most part working in local industries.

Organist and Choirmaster,
A. W. Sargent from the Monkgate Methodist
As a result of two recent broadcasts, the choir of Monkgate Methodist Church had many letters in appreciation of their tone quality and clear enunciation. This third recital will probably add to the list of the choir's admirers.
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.
