GORDON STEPHEN (entertainer)
The Knightswood Brass Band was formed by miners jn 1877, when Knightswood was a mining district. When the pits were worked out the small community had to find other work, and as a result financial and personal worries harassed the Band and hindered its development. On the outbreak of war in 1914, almost the entire personnel enlisted. Knightswood village was taken over by Glasgow in 1912, and now in the place of pits there is one of the largest garden cities in Scotland. The Band has made remarkable progress since 1931 and its ambition is to secure a permanent place among the foremost bands of the country.
Gordon Stephen first came to the microphone three years ago and is well-known on concert platforms. He writes most of his songs and readings himself. As a member of the Glasgow Pantheon Club he played comedy parts in The Arcadians, High Jinks, The Quaker Girl, The Toreador, and The Dancing Mistress.

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.
