Leader, Frank Thomas
Conductor, Idris Lewis
The programme arranged by Glyn Jones
Ronald Chivers , one of the singers to be heard in this musical-comedy programme, has been a soloist from eight years of age, first as a treble, then as an alto, then a tenor, and finally as a baritone. His voice never ' broke '—it just gradually became lower until at last it settled into a baritone. Apart from his many singing engagements he is also a well-known conductor.
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.
