: 'Ow Bin Yer?

A Black Country Miscellany including a relay from The Primitive Methodist Chapel, Upper Ettingshall
The programme arranged by H. W. Small and produced by Owen Reed.
(Midland Regional Programme)
A feature of this Black Country programme is to be the playing of an ophicleide. This wind instrument is now regarded as obsolete. Black Country melodists of the last century loved to write parts for it. The ophicleide originated about 1810 in the application of keys to that famous seventeenth-century wind instrument, the Serpent. Joseph Kirkland, of Bilston, who is to play it, is self-taught, there being no teachers left. It is longer than a trombone and is played vertically with a mouthpiece near the centre. Some of the stops are as large as a five-shilling piece.


Arranged by: H. W. Small
Produced by: Owen Reed

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.
