Conductor, Lionel A. Leavey
Irene Baker (soprano)
Exactly when this band was formed is unknown, but records do show that there was a musician named Rice who held the post of bandmaster for over forty years. The present combination was re-formed nearly sixty years ago, and the .available evidence points to the fact that the band has been in existence in some form for nearly a century.
The conductor who will be in charge this evening, Lionel A. Leavey , has the distinction of being the first bandmaster in the West of England to gain the special diploma of the Bandsmen's College of Music.

Some notes and observations on the outstanding agricultural events of the last two weeks

: Short Story ' RED INDIAN '

by L. A. G. Strong
Read by the Author
Last week, on Wednesday, September I, a reading of L. A. G. Strong 's poems was given on the National wavelength, but this evening listeners in the West Country-a part that has been the setting of many of his stories-win hear him in the medium for which he is best known, fiction. A point that makes his tales of the countryside particularly attractive is the fact that he knows everything about the making of a living on the land, and the fact that he is a keen student of dialect.

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.
