A tour of the town's places of entertainment
Listeners may feel that an Aberystwyth Night should feature the University College and the National Library, but this is a holiday programme and they will hear a dance band, a silver band, and a concert party. All the members of the dance band and the silver band are local : the silver band gives concerts on the promenade. The concert party comes from the Municipal Hall—Jim Nolan 's' Vaudevillians '.
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.
