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.
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.
