Alfred Reynolds
Alfred Reynolds has been so intimately associated with the late' Sir Nigel Playfair 's post-war adventure at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, that the fact of his having lived, worked and made a career before that splendid epoch may be lost sight of. Reynolds's first real opportunity at that theatre came with the production of Sheridan's The Duenna, the music of which was originally composed by Thomas Linley , and though it is agreed that Linley's airs fitted the play like a glove, and were charming in an inoffensive way, his music has been more or less correctly described as 'Handel and water
'In 'consequence', as Sir Nigel Playfair recorded in his book ' Hammersmith Hoy', 'when we were planning our production, it was obvious that the music would need a very great deal of overhauling, and indeed rewriting ; and for the purpose we called in Mr. Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds was already a very distinguished pianist, and he conducted for us in the Insect Play. He is such a modest man that it Was with a great deal of difficulty that I persuaded him of his competence for the task : when he sat down to it, however, he became enthusiastic, and by the time he had finished there was really a good deal more Reynolds than Linley in the composition'.

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
