: THE NATIONAL BRASS BAND FESTIVAL

An eye-witness account by J. H. Elliot
Today has seen the great brass-band festival at Alexandra Palace, the 33rd of these annual events which used to be held at the Crystal Palace. The whole scene, the playing, and the players, will be described by J. H. Elliot , a Northern music critic who is an authority on the brass-band movement and has published two books about it.
An average entry of 200 bands from all parts of the country, and something like 50,000 spectators, are drawn by the Festival. Small bands, comparative beginners, compete during the day in addition to the more famous ones, for there are ten graded sections of the contests. The star playing of the day is of course for the National Championship, and at the end of the day seven bands selected from the Championship class take part in a massed-band concert.

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

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.
