: THE FLOCKTONUNITED BAND

Conductor, Ernest Thorpe
March, Knight Templar
George Allan
Fiockton United Band this year celebrates its hundredth birthday. The players are mostly miners, although there are two mill-hands in the present band. Only in the last two or three years have they attended contests, but under Ernest Thorpe 's conductorship they have won forty-one prizes in thirty contests, including awards at Belle Vue in 1936 and 1937. Last autumn they won the News Chronicle trophy at Alexandra Palace.
Local patriotism keeps the band going. In the small village of only 1,400 people almost everyone pays a penny a week subscription to the. band.
' The Tumbler', in which
H. Lumb plays the solo trombone, is one of Ernest Thorpe 's own compositions.

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.
