Jack, the Scalp:
T. O. Corrin
T. O. Corrin again comes to the microphone tonight with his gramophone records to pick out the specially attractive bits of Saturday night's BBC concert at the Ulster Hall. These pre-concert chats, informative and analytical, give many concert-goers and stay-at-home listeners just that helpful stimulus and line of approach that makes all the difference to their appreciation of the music.
Ever since the Northern Ireland station-as it then was-opened in 1924, T. O. Corrin has been in close contact with the musical side of broadcasting. In those early days he was actually a member of the BBC staff, but he subsequently resigned to take up the post of Inspector of Music under the Northern Ireland Ministry of Education.
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.
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.
