The Grand Hotel Orchestra at the Grand Hotel, Bristol, specialises in light music of the gypsy type, interspersed with piano solos by Adolphe Trotman , who has a large repertoire of ' straight ' and syncopated solos. Every member of the orchestra has had experience of broadcasting. Edgar Hawke , the first violin of the orchestra, actually has his own broadcasting combination.

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.
