The Cardiff Corporation Transport Band originally belonged to the St. Mark's Tramways Brotherhood Band which was formed in 1909. After the War, many of the instruments needed renewing and there were no funds for the purpose. In 1931 the Secretary, W. Francis, had ballot forms printed asking the tramwaymen if they would consent to having a 1d. per week stopped out of their wages to purchase a new set of instruments. Nearly 500 men consented and on the strength of this support the instruments were ordered, payment being spread over a period of years.
The band visited London in 1931 to lead Wales in the British Legion Rally. Needless to say, they played the ' Men of Harlech.'
Tarrant Bailey returned from a trip abroad at the end of March. Whilst abroad he wrote one of the numbers he will play in this programme, namely, ' Jazzbo. in Banjoland '.
He was interested to find out how the banjo would be received by an Oriental audience and he experimented with Arabs in Jerusalem to find that they were enthusiastic in their reception.

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.
