At the Organ of The Capitol Cinema,
An interesting item in tonight's relay from the Capitol Cinema is ' Memories of Scott Skinner '. The ' Memories ' will include ' Edgefauld House ', ' Rose-bud of Alanvale', 'The Miller o' Him ', ' The Laird o' Drumblair ', ' Cradle Song', 'Gladstone Reel', ' Gordon Crombie ', ' Munro Reel ', ' The weeping Birches of Kilmorack ', ' The Gay Gordons March ', and 'The Bonnie Lass o' Bon-Accord ', the latter being very appropriately Mr. Coombs' signature tune. Scott Skinner had, and still has, a great reputation as a composer and player of Scottish strathspeys and reels. Listeners are asked to imagine the organ grille, the proscenium arch, and the front curtain in silver, with the domed ceiling and pale oatmeal colour on which coloured lights play from the deepest reds and greens to the palest paste! shades of mauve and yellow.
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.
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.
